I'm always looking for original photos to scan.
Please note the source of the various images I'm showing in this feature - they came from many different collections and some were mailed to me from as far away as California.

Some people mistake newspaper facsimile reprints as pictures...while they are better than nothing, as you can see below, a scan from an original print is no comparison to a lower quality scan from newsprint, book, or magazine.
I have downsized the top image for use on the web page, but I could show it at the original resolution I scanned it which would be sharper and show more detail.
If I would increase the resolution/size of the newspaper scan, you would see a mat of dots and the image would become unclear as to what it is showing.
