As you can probably tell by looking at the photograph below, the color  has obviously faded over time.  This is one of the problems with pictures in general, as time goes on, your photos, unless archived properly will fade and deteriorate.  Light, sunlight especially will fade and eventually ruin your photographs and documents.

The solution is getting them scanned and digitally archived so that your materials are permanently stored for future us and reproduction.

Visual Recollection does full color retouching and restoration as well as all other archiving issues you may have with your photographs.
