Photos from GCHS Collection
photographic prints of any picture featured on this web site, or of any
photo in the Gladwin County Historical Society collection that has a collection
number in the form of GCHS-200x-xxxx or BCC-200x-xxx (e.g. GCHS-2002-0079
or BCC-2002-349.) The prints are high resolution (much higher image quality
than those posted on the web site) and fully identified with all information
we have about the photo, including source, subject, dates and identifications
funds raised by the sale of prints will support he Gladwin County Historical
Society's effort to archive, catalog and restore the entire collection,
as well as provide protection for the original prints. No company
or individual derives ANY profit.
provided to you are actual photographs, not just inkjet prints done on
a home computer. The difference is tremendous. For one thing, photos
can last more than 100 years, inkjet copies certainly cannot. Regardless
what the manufacturers may say, humidity causes the inks to constantly migrate,
blur and fade. In addition, the image quality of the photograph is markedly
better than the best inkjet images. Also, all photos available under this
program have been professionally restored and enhanced, and the restored image
is copyrighted; unauthorized copying is illegal.
photos in the GCHS collection are also available as partially restored
or unrestored photographic prints. Scanning must be done only by authorized GCHS
Of course the GCHS appreciates any additional donations - they may be tax deductible.

photo lab that processes our prints normally charges considerably more
for an 8x10 print, but has agreed to charge the GCHS at a bulk rate if
we do all the image processing and submit in bulk quantities. They
print them as time and space permit. This means delivery time can
vary; you can usually expect prints to be available within 4 weeks.
For faster service prices are doubled.
order prints, please record the catalog number, size, and quantity desired
