The UH Mānoa Hamilton Library recently welcomed home its collection of rare aerial photos damaged in the October 2004 flood.

In anticipation of the return, the UH Mānoa Hamilton Library Preservation department prepped room 304‘s area and shelves. Sent for restoration to Belfor USA in Fort Worth, Texas, the now-treated aerial photos and supplies made their return on February 19, 2009.

Despite working around a tight time frame and current construction to the library‘s loading dock, Hawaii Restorative helped extract ten pallets from the 20‘ container.

The pallets contained a total of 341 custom-made boxes of treated aerial photos and supplies.
