I have some black and white photographs from the 1940 and 50s that are fading. What is the best way to preserve them to slow the fading process or stop it altogether? Is that possible? Any feedback would be appreciated.
I think it is a good idea to get your photos on disk. If you want to preserve the originals :
1. Keep them away from direct sunlight ! Exposure to direct sunlight destroys photographic images; B&W / color.
2. Keep the originals in protective Archival sleeves and /or boxes. Be sure they are archival protective. The best source for this will be a Professional Photo Supply.
3. If you will display a certain photo (original or copy) you might want to consider framing it in protective glass, being sure to keep it away from direct sunlight.
I trust this will help you.
