A mailing list dedicated to the history and conservation of photographic materials.

What is welcome on the List: Anything related to the conservation and restoration of photographic materials, including discussions on technical provenance, authentication, dating, identification, history of reproduction technologies or products, and the chemical or physical treatments of artifacts.

Discussions of procedures (e.g., photomacrography) involving computers, films and digital cameras used in the identification and authentication of photographs are also welcome. This could also include announcements of meetings, conferences, courses, workshops, new books and book reviews. 

What is Not welcome: Digital "restoration" and detailed how-to procedures of historic or "alt-photo" processes are better left to other lists.
