There are about a billion nice photos of restorations on teh interwebs, but I can't seem to find a period photo, in books or on web. Any help is appreciated. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

i saw that too, but i think its a water color. Good pic though.

If you can, find the book "Orange Tails....".

Unfortunately you probably won't find it on the internet for preview so you can get a look at some photos before hand, but a trip to book store or library might have it.
