Poster Restoration: Phantom of the Opera (1943)

For this poster restoration a vibrant original Phantom of the Opera (1943) British Quad presented some unique challenges. Overall it wasn’t in bad condition, except…

So first priority is all the tape has to be removed before any backing can take place using chemicals.

In addition all the tape residue and glue has to be removed as well.

So after a careful process of removing the tape then it was in to some baths for cleaning, buffer and then linen backing.
