The Yukon Archives are home to wonderful and amazing things!

Conservators assess, repair, preserve, and prevent further damage to artworks and historical pieces. This piece has been damaged by silverfish, which eat the gelatin binder applied to art to hold the image particles in place.

Note: This piece is part of the Archives’ conservation lab study collection, and is used for educational purposes. It is not part of the archival holdings of the Yukon Archives.
