Subject: Butter paper on photograph

Butter paper on photograph

From: Madhavi Singh <dharohar>
Date: Saturday, January 11, 2003
I have an old painted photograph (70 years old) pasted on paper
board, and found a butter paper pasted on back of the photograph
when I removed the backing board. My problem is how do I soften this
butter paper for removal (no softening in warm water--only choice
left is mechanical removal).

Can any one suggest me the materials used in making of butter paper
(used for interleaving in photo album)?
