Restoration has been the backbone of Tony Castro & Company for over 20 years.  Cracked
    and loose plaster from settling foundations, water damage from generations of failed
    roofing and leaking radiators, and dirt from old furnaces took their tole.  Many decorations
    were painted or wall papered over long ago and were long since forgotten.  We have had the
    privilege and the thrill of bringing back to life a wonderful collection of decorations.
These 'before and after' photos show the restoration of various decorations.
    The images below show the discovery of a section of decoration protected from overpaint by the
    trim of a door that had been moved.  The old black and white photo showed that this decoration
    had continued around the theater.  The photo was enlarged to actual size and combined with the
    uncovered colors gave all the information necessary to execute the reproduction.
