Recovered Silver: Bringing Negatives Back From the Dead

Howard Johnson's Restaurant, U.S. Route 30,
Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, c. 1989

With some Photoshopping, these negatives can be largely restored.  I lost seventy-five per-cent of my negatives in a flood, and these are what the "survivors" look like.  These two frames were exposed at a Howard Johnson's restaurant in south-central Pennsylvania.  Like most of its orange-roofed brethren, it is now closed.
