I've been rescanning some old GDB entries, and I'm happy to say that the results have been well worth the effort.
Look at this one, from... oh I don't know, a long time ago. Let's say eight years. The slide (from July 12, 1958) had turned an unpleasant magenta, and this early attempt at restoration is pretty bad.
What a difference! I don't know what to say about it that you can't see with your own eyebones. Though I will mention that Columbia made its debut only a month before this photo was taken.
I have a special fondness for the old saguaro forest from the pre-Nature's Wonderland Mine Train attraction. And it doesn't show up in a lot of photos, so even this poorly-restored version is better than nothing.
However, this iteration is an improvement in pretty much every way!
