The big challenge of the past year, still ongoing, is dealing with big collections of old postcards, from the Belgrade city museum. These are archival materials of the museums's collections from Urban Planning and Architecture of city of Belgrade, numbering around 3.5k of postcards of various techniques such as: photographs, printing, overlapping thumbnails, reprints witch are mostly in a good shape. They represent a rich history of the city. The hold little treasures and memories of past times. My colleague and I have more conserving and restoring to do, a meer 700 each so far.

And here are some before and after shots,
no digital editing,only for the matching of pairs together in one PS file. Enjoy ;-)
will continue soon
