TNA - conserving photographs

There's an interesting post on the National Archives blog about the conservation of some 12,000 photographs within one its collections. From the post:

The COPY series comes from the Copyright Office at Stationer’s Hall and contains the forms of application for registration of proprietorship from 1837-1912 of different artistic, commercial or literary categories, one of which is photographs. Attached to most of the forms submitted are one or more photographic prints, providing a representation of what was being registered.

The full post then describes the state of the collection and efforts to address deterioration within it. To read it visit
