A gallery of pictures used throughout Jerripedia

Sources

Jerripedia pictures are taken from a wide variety of sources, a substantial number from two collections of Channel Island photographs and postcards owned by private collectors in South Africa and the USA. Fuirther images are taken from a private collection in France. Many of the images, particularly those from old postcards, have been digitally enhanced to improve reproduction on computer screens at the resolution and size appropriate to a website of this nature. Where possible, contrast and sharpness have been increased to restore the appearance of much-faded originals to something closer to their original condition.

As a general rule print and handwriting have been digitally removed from the surface of images. Some of the images have been cropped to exclude extraneous material, damaged corners on originals, etc and to concentrate on the subject of the image within the allocated space.
