The Scots College, Sydney

The Scots College, Sydney, has undertaken a long term restoration process to return some of the ornate features of the older building to their original style. This process has also included the selection, restoration, digitisation, enlargement and framing of photographs from the College archive. These photographs have been used to reflect the rich and diverse 117 year history. Large ornate gilt frames, that represent particular periods, have been used to capture the era that the photographs represent. Two major collections containing over 50 framed images now adorn the walls in the College Dining Hall and in the original hallway of the main school.

The work undertaken by Mr. Bernard West has been of an exceptionally high quality, from advice on restoration, skilful repairs to old and damaged originals, digitization and enlargement of the very important archival images, to the selection and framing of the photographs to a very high archival standard. Additionally, Mr. West has created a digital archive of images that will serve to preserve these valuable historical records.

Mr. West has managed the project from inception to completion in a very professional and diligent manner and the College highly values its continuing association with him. It has been a pleasure working with a true professional and a gentleman.

NSW Department of Mineral Resources

‘Australian Photo Restoration Services completed an important scanning project for the New South Wales Department of Mineral Resources (now part of the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries). They duplicated over 3000 glass lantern slides and copied nearly 1000 historic prints from the Department’s Heritage Photo Collection, prior to their being archived at State Records. APRS carried out the project with great diligence and attention to detail. Their experience and problem solving skills ensured that the project was completed on time and on budget.’
