How do I remove moldy smell from old photos?

by Wanda

I have several photos that came from my grandmother’s house. The house has been vacant for 10 1/2 yrs and is falling apart. I despise that moldy smell and have ruined a professional family photo trying to take the cardboard backing off. I have trashed the frames but don’t want to bring the photos in the house until the smell is gone. They are spread out in the garage. I need to do something before further damage is done. How do I remove the musty smell from the old pictures? Thanks!
