Treasure Chest Thursday - William Walker Photo

When my father-in-law passed away in 1998 he left behind a backpack full of family photos.  Sadly most of those photos were unmarked and, of course, storing them in a backpack was not the best way to preserve them.

At the very bottom of the backpack I found this photo:

It is torn in half with the corner missing.  The photo is of John William WALKER my husband's great grandfather.

William was born 17 May 1876 in Burley, Yorkshire, England.  He died 5 Sep 1945 in Bridgeport, CT.
As far as I know, this is the earliest photo anyone in the family has of William.  

Here is the photo after restoration:



  1. Isn't it wonderful what restorers can do to old photos!

  2. Lisa-
    I have a photo I would love to have restored - it has scratches all over it. Where can you get this done?

  3. Margel:

    I had it done at Gene's Camera on Lincolnway East.


  4. Look at his sweet face! So soulful!
