Sennotype Restoration

​Paul Brought me this very precious old Sennotype slide. Unfortunately there was no colouring on this example. Either it has been lost or damaged, but it is no longer part of this photo. Paul is going to be donating this photo to the Otago Settlers Museum. This photo is a relative of Pauls’ and is of importance as he was one of those early settlers in that region.  It has now been fully restored as a black and white print which he will keep.

    Thank you for your comments Jill. Glad you like the restoration of the Sennotype. Paul was very happy with the restored version of this wonderful portrait.
    Paul emailed me the text information you are referring to including the photos of the lady. He just referred to the information as
    “here is some information my brother got from Dunedin about the photo I left with you yesterday.”
    He did not credit you as the author so I have deleted the text. Regarding the photos of the lady, there is no copyright that extends to these photos due to their age therefore no permission is required.

    Dear Richard
    I was excited to see your post on sennotypes, then disappointed to see that your second paragraph on the London Portrait Rooms and the description of the sennotype process has been plagiarised verbatim from an email I sent to the owner of the sennotype of the man. Could you please either remove that paragraph or credit it to me. As it stands, it reads like it is your own observation. I am assuming you secured permission from Toitu Otago Settlers Museum to use the sennotype of the woman.
