Military Monday – The Photo Flip

Sometime in 1944, my grandfather stood in front of a door in his Army service uniform and posed for a photo. I have no idea of the location (other than a street number of 227), date or photographer. While looking at the photo, I noticed that the address on the door was inverted. That, in addition to the dark exposure, led me to do some ‘fixin.’

The new photo is properly aligned, while leaving the cardboard frame as it. I’ve also lightened the photo just a bit to make it more clear.

Some may think I am altering a piece history, but I do believe that some minor alterations to damaged or poorly developed photos can help keep the image truer to what was intended.
