I have two aerial photos of my fathers business that were taken in the late 70's. The photos are faded and yellowed. On the back of them is a stamp reading Aerial Surveys Henry Dewolf Rochester, NY. There is also a hand written number on the back of them. Is there any chance that the negatives or proofs may still be available? I have wanted them for years and my father just gave them to me.

Thank you,

Bob Kelley
