Just a bit from my murky past -- found this school photo languishing among some dusty relics.

As you can see from the original, it's had a somewhat hard life.

Thought I'd post a before-and-after of it and, just to keep it on topic, an FZ20 snap of the final inkjet print (taken under fluorescent light and through the glass of the frame.)

And yes, this was the whole school in 1937, grades 1 to 8 -- all 19 of us -- plus the head (only) teacher...

This is a great post. I do like the remake very much. I will be getting out some of my treasured pictures and will give the FZ20 some work since the weather has not been great.

Back row, second from the left -- I look somewhat different now... (Although not legally supposed to, I actually finished school at the end of that year -- had gone right through and there was nowhere else to go, high school was both too far away and mostly for rich kids in those days...)

If any-one's interested, the original pic was made with one of those old wooden boxes on a tripod (I wouldn't have a clue what make, but it's probably worth a fortune on the antique market today (as indeed am I!)) on a glass slide -- the photographer lined everyone up, then ducked under his black sheet to make the exposure.

We were strictly not allowed to stir or even blink 'til he said so.

He was the 'Official School Photographer', came round once a year and called back a week or so later to take orders for prints.

He and the school padre were quite popular (opportunity to goof off...) -- same could NOT be said for school dentist or doctor.

Nice pic-its great to have such photos and be able to "refresh" them for your offspring to enjoy . What a head of hair you have or is that had?!? Sorry all in fun:-). I sure will "hate" showing my grandkids my old school photos-for sure they will make fun of grannys hairstyle and her choice of clothing:roll:. That won't be for a while since my oldest is 11 and she alreadymakes fun of my old pics.

I have been tempted to scan some old photos ,of my fathers WWII pics, but now might take pics of them instead. Thanks for the idea!!

happy :|,
