Brilliant Biologists &
Blessed Baseball Players

Nostalgia is finding value within the little moments and our larger memories. As a member of the Photomyne family, we know the past holds a special place in your heart, and we welcome you to our weekly newsletter of nostalgic photos.

This week in history

Lucky shot

On September 28, 1928, Scottish physician and microbiologist Sir Alexander Fleming examined a type of mold that accidentally turned into a fascinating discovery. He named that mold Penicillin, and it changed the face of biology and medicine forever.

Family flashback

The whole tribe

"A professional photographer took this family photo in Savannah, GA, in November 1986. Back row: my two brothers on each side, their wives, me holding my son, and my husband. Front row: my mom holding her granddaughter (my niece), my dad, and my daughter. This photo was in my mother's room, framed. She recently passed away, so I have been going through her photos and scanning them to my Photomyne app."

A touch of Sharpy

The Great One

Roberto Clemente's face after a successful game is the definition of satisfaction and pride. This week marks 50 years since the 3,000th and final hit of his baseball career, on September 30, 1972.

Sharpy is a feature allowing you to unblur grainy or lower-quality photos – try it yourself!

The cat that got the cream

"A dog is a man's best friend"? In that case, a woman's best friend must be a cat!

On cloud nine

"The child in the photo is my mother's cousin. It was taken in Kansas, sometime in the 1950s. I don't have many other details, but this photo always makes me smile".
