Picture Frame Delaminating

Not sure when this happened but the laminate covering the frame has let go, only the top piece.

There is fair amount of tension so I doubt contact cement will hold.

Any idea what type of adhesive would have originally been used?

I would assume contact adhesive was used originally. Whatever adhesive you use - I'd tape the laminate down until the adhesive cures.

Contact adhesive was probably used when the frame was first made. As a repair I'd probably use a two part epoxy.
