heritage of your organisation is a unique, irreplaceable record
and often, there is only one copy of a particular photo or
document in existence.
The photo of Dobroyd Aquatic Club shows the tragic loss that
can occur in just a moment of time.
Dobroyd Aquatic Club at Drummoyne, NSW, was recently gutted
by fire and whilst the building structure and furniture can
be replaced, the history and achievements of the club and
its members, represented by the photographs and certificates
on display, are now tragically lost forever.
Having your most important photographs copied
onto a digital archive as a precaution against disaster is
a necessary precaution to ensure the preservation of your
organisations’ spirit and history.
We recently completed copying the most important
photographic memorabilia for the North
Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club after two important photographs
mysteriously disappeared from the display. The Club is now
in a position to replace the entire collection should this
become necessary for whatever reason.
We can work on location at your premises and
copy those photographs, certificates and displayed memorabilia
you feel would be important to replace in the event of their
loss or damage.
We have worked with international conservation
organisations, museums and government departments to document
and duplicate photographs of historical and cultural significance,
so we are well practised in taking care of precious photographs.
In addition to creating new copies of the
photographs, we can provide conservation framing services,
including designing, arranging and displaying the reproductions.
