Success part II
The above shows the 90 year old photo after careful removal, and cutting it free from the attached "print-side down" fragile paper, still glued to the "magnetic" photo page. It also shows the paper, with no information legible.
The photos below shows a scan of the bleed through of the text, after wetting the thin caption paper attachment. and the following "mirror image" scan, as available on most scanners. Now with all the text and information available. There would have been very little chance of most of us ever identifying those WWI Flying ofFicers, OR the reason for the photo, without saving of that text.
