People say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but what happens when those pictures decay or are destroyed over time? There is a place on the social media site Reddit.com that is dedicated to restoring meaningful photos to their former glory… for free. These online good samaritans help people restore their precious keepsakes for nothing but a thank you.
Below are the requests that were posted and then the “after” photos. Some are very impressive restorations.
“My beloved 87 year old grandmother passed away yesterday. The funeral is on Saturday and It would mean the world if someone could restore this photo of her for the service.”
“A photo of my friend that his parents would like to use at his commemoration.”
“Please help. I want to restore this photo of my grandparents for my father.”
“Could someone please restore these 1920s photos of my grandfather?”
“My parents in the 40s as teenagers. Mom passed away and I want to restore for my Dad.”
“I want to display some family wedding photos at my wedding in March. This is a picture of my great-grandparents on their wedding day.”

“My great-grandmother as a child in 1905. Want to restore for my mother.”
