Condition of Photographs
I have found that several of the later Moffat
cards in my collection have deteriorated.
On the right is an example, suffering from black
spots near the top and white spots elsewhere.
In the picture above the most obvious of these
faults have been removed using Photoshop.
[he method of storage of photos can result in
deterioration, but I suspect that the problem here may also be a
result of the original processing.
My Moffat photos have come from a wide variety
of sources and I have not encountered any similar problems with
Moffat cartes de visite produced in years up to 1875]
