Hi Kerry, what a great portrait of your dad. You did a really nice job of printing it. I only have one photo of my dad, it is not near the quality of this photo. My dad passed away 28 years ago. I would treasure this photo for ever. Very well done. Pat #679646

Thanks to all of you for your kind comments. It's a wonderful gift to be able to enjoy my Dad's photos so many years after they were created. He was a very special man.

Kerry, what an amazing photo and I'm sure that it brings back a flood gate of wonderful memories. In this day when family does not seem to matter, those of us who had great parents and loved them as they deserved are by far the luckiest of peolpe. This will be a wonderful gift to those he left behind... #802165

It is a great photo, the negative was well preserved. I have a few negatives from my family, from about 1927, I am going to do the same.
It brings tears to my eyes also.

My Dad was a photographer in the 1920's and 1930's. I recently puchased an Epson 4870 scanner which allows me to scan large negatives. This photo is from a 75 year old negative of my Dad's! This image looks new and brought tears to my eyes as my Dad passed away in 1983. It's like having him close again.
