A rare original image of the Nauvoo Temple was discovered by a Church Historian recently and restored by a volunteer photo restorationist.

“One of the well-known daguerreotypes of the Nauvoo Temple was found in an old museum and labeled as a pioneer mirror,” Church Historian, Brittany Chapman said. “A historian from the Church History Library was walking around and noticed it and knew that it wasn’t a mirror. It is one of only six images known to exist of the original Nauvoo Temple.”

Keith Finlayson is a volunteer photo restorationist for the Church and has been doing so for two years, after retiring from a career in the medical field. He restored the rare Nauvoo Temple image using advanced software. Finlayson is fascinated by Church history and has restored many interesting daguerreotype photos during his time volunteering for the Church.
