Subject: Removing photograph from glass

Removing photograph from glass

From: Paul Messier <pmessier>
Date: Tuesday, February 7, 1995
Immersing a photograph which has become stuck to glass in water is not
recommended.  Often the adhesion between the photographic emulsion and
the glass is stronger than the adhesion between the emulsion and the
paper base.
