      I recently discovered 20 8.5’x12″ hand colored photographs tucked into a cedar box (my guess here). The prints are in excellent shape and have been stored this way for over 60 years. I’ve decided to interfile acid free tissue paper between each print and placed them back in the box. The box is from the photographers studio and appears to be made exclusively as a presentation piece to go with the prints. Question, should I removed them or let them be as we found them? Thanks.

      I think if they have been stored for over 60years, that means they haven had problems with the box. Also is known that if you control temperaure and relative humidity, there will be in a good shape for more years. A new box will help of course ,but enviromental conditions must to be controled otherwise no matter what you do they wont last.
