Q: How can I pay?
A: We offer 2 online payment options. You can use your credit card, by providing the required details on the check out page. Your order will be confirmed after the details have been verified and the payment authorised. If you choose PAYPAL, your order will be confirmed and you will be then directed to the PAYPAL system to complete the purchase. When the purchase is authorised, you can then return to Myhometown to view the completed order.

Q: Can I send a picture to a friend?
A: Yes you can send a picture to a friend. When you enter the shopping cart, use your friend's address as the ship to party. Otherwise fill in the fields as normal. You will be billed and your friend or loved one will receive the gift of a beautifully printed and framed (if requested) image of old Ireland.

Q: Will I have to pay import duty?
A: We have no control over import regulations. Therefore, a percentage of the cost of the image may be charged to you by your local authority. However, our experience so far has been that no import duty has been charged.

Q: What choice of frames do I have?
A: We provide only one frame type for each size of print. This is a high quality wooden frame chosen to embellish the image. We have opted to provide a limited range to keep the shopping facility simple and clear. The other problem that we overcame with this policy is that of clearly presenting frames types on the internet. If you require a specific frame type, you have two otions. You can email us with your requirements and we will try to satisfy your wishes. We will offer you a customised solution with an added service charge or you can order the print only. Then you can frame the picture to your own specification locally. Our frames include mounting in a cream colour. Our default offer of the wooden frame and cream mount looks very well, complimenting most decor and enhancing the style of these old images.

Q: What quality is the colour on such early photos?
A: The colour quality varies from image to image. However, we discard any images that are not of the high quality that we require to satisfy our customers. Many of the pictures are in black and white and many more were coloured manually. Where this manual colouring took place the results are quite exquisite with the loving care and artistry clearly on view. We also provide a black and white option to provide the atmosphere that only a black and white photograph can offer.
