I wonder if you could clean up this picture for me.  It is Stanton Drew School about 1895.  My grandmother is the girl on the right with the long hair.

Thanks for that.  I think my grandmother had auburn hair and brown eyes.

Hi
May I say what a wonderful photo!
It looks so clear and I am sure it must be very old.So for it to still look this good after so many years is remarkable.

Thankyou very much.  It is amazing what you have achieved.  I was thinking of offering it to the village web site in case any of the other children can be identified.  It is the only picture I have of my grandmother as a girl. I only remember her as an eighty year old lady.  She was born in 1882. I think children must have been better behaved in those days as no one is pulling faces.

Actually, they all look quite sad and sombre  :(  with the exception of your grandmother  :)
