    Good afternoon everyone. I'm glad I found this group 'cause hopefully I'll
    get this rather serious matter resolved, with your help that is! ;))

    Here's the situation: I've a bunch of photos that were stored in a less than
    ideal way for about 20 years. About 5 of these got stuck to each other -
    back of one photo to the front of another etc ... I was told by a local
    camera guy to soak these overnight in some room temperature demineralized,
    purified water. This didn't really work to any significant level. Btw, these
    are b&w photos made of quite heavy stock paper, very unlike what they use
    today. Can you guys help me out ? What should I do ??

    Contact Iron Mountain and ask them what they'd do.

    Soak them in warm water with photo-flo solution.

    Trash 'em, they are stuck forever. Probably. Might try plain old force -
    some of the back will stay stuck, *might* be able to soak/rub that off.
