Vintage Photographs of the Past
Photo Album

(On this page you can browse our collection of Vintage Photographs in the Photo Album, below.)

With Amador County's gold rush past, there is a wealth of photographic imagery documenting its rich history.

Under our prior business name "Out of the Woods Photos", we have been providing restored photographs to customers  who enjoy and appreciate our area's historic past and vintage photography. We will continue to do so under our new business name "Pastimes Photography".

Where the Photos Come From
These photographs have
come from the Amador County Archives, local families and the Library of Congress. Each one has been carefully restored to reflect its original condition or to improve upon it. It is an ever-growing collection of images from our area's past.

Usually these photographs are in varying states of poor condition and in need of considerable enhancing. We take a great deal of pride in the restoration work of these vintage photos.
(We offer these same services to our customers for their own photos, too. Click here for more information.)

About Our Prints
All images are printed on archival-quality Canon photo paper using only Canon Inks. Print longevity rivals that of a traditional darkroom-processed photograph.
Each photograph is uniquely matted, framed and labeled with its subject and circa date.
They make a wonderful addition to any home or business as "vintage art for modern walls".

These prints are on display and available for sale at Jackson True Value.
If you see a photo you want that is not on display, custom matting and framing is available at no extra charge. Please allow up to 2 weeks for some frame styles.

Below is our Gallery of Vintage Photographs of the Past.
