We first "met" Steve when we were looking for someone to speak about the history of photography and restoration of old photographs for our local Bolton Family History Society a few years ago now. Steve has been good enough to visit us several times since discussing various aspects of his passion for analysing and where possible restoring old pictures, and each time he has had us enthralled. (He has actually advised on dating and been able to restore four of my own ambrotypes for which I am very grateful, and I know he has also given valuable insight and assistance to other members.) We are very appreciative of his ongoing support and services

I was pleased, following a talk given by Steve, to commission him to restore and print some of the photos from my family album. Not only was I satisfied with the quality of the prints but also the mine of information that he gleaned from the photographs. This will enable me to go forward in the research of my family history. I have looked at this album from being a small child but now know much more about my ancestors in the photographs.

In the process of writing my autobiography ‘Milk to Motorways’ about my life growing up in the 1940’s and 50’s, I asked Steve to help with the restoration of some very old family photos for inclusion in the book. Steve did a tremendous job of bringing clarity to some favourite images and this has contributed towards the success of my book…………..

Great friendly service from Steve - prompt responses and efficient - I took
my Grandparents wedding photograph to Steve and Steve took the time to
explain the photograph history and the use of the paper used and why it had
ended up in the condition it had which was very interesting.

The restoration was perfect and really brought my grandparents photograph to
a better quality image and is now pride of place in my Mums lounge, she was
so pleased with it and we all love seeing it.

Thank you, very very highly recommended.

Hi Stephen, the package, and was blown away by the clarity and amazing work that you have done!

All I can say is a huge thank you. It looks absolutely amazing. Now to find a decent framer. Something subtle and simple, not over the top so as not to distract from the actual photo.

As I Said, Henry loves it, and we only wish we still had the other of inside the parliament. Unfortunately, Henry's Father gave it to his uncle, and he never returned it.

Many thanks for all your time and effort.

Best wishes
Lesley & Gysbert Henry Maasdorp (7th)
