WAINWRIGHT - photo restoration please
« on: Thursday 09 March 17 12:19 GMT (UK) »
This young man was one of about 13 children of the Wainwright family who lived in Dagenham, Essex.  I am researching this family for my brother in law, John Wainwright and this is the only photo he possesses.  I would really appreciate a restoration and the removal of the two rings which somebody has drawn on the shirt to represent buttons!  Many thanks.

Thanks Handypandy,

A great result.  This has made my brother in Law very happy.  As I said, it is the only family photo he has left and he is now nearly 77 years old.

To Handypandy and Pablo59

That distinctive top lip seems to have been hidden by a large moustache in some of the Wainwright boys when they grew up to be men!
