All the best,
Well, of course it can be done. However, with hundreds of thousands it becomes a large job. Are there providers for these services?Lastly, what is the state of the art right now for what can be done with negatives. Is there a way to digitally turn them into positives and enlarge them, as we once did in a darkroom? If so, that would be Godsend.

My Dad left behind easily hundreds of thousands of negatives, packed in many, many boxes. To my knowledge, they go back as far as the late 1940s, possibly earlier. I have no idea what to do with them and would greatly appreciate any ideas from you and the rest of the Nelson Foto community. Dad has wanted to give them (and some of his prints) to some archive that might like them. I was going to approach the two art schools he went to, at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, but I’m entirely open to other ideas.

I have replied that I will post his query here for suggestions; I have recommended that Dan contact Fototrove at Getty Images, with the view to offering them Les' archive. However, other ideas will be welcome.
