William Charlton died 1902
« on: Sunday 06 August 17 00:23 BST (UK) »
This is the only known photograph of William Hedley Charlton taken outside his pub (The Station Hotel, Ebchester, Co Durham).  He died in 1902 and the pub was burned down in 1948.  Could one of you miracle workers please tidy it up.  The photo includes William but I have a better photo of him so his presence is incidental!  I am just looking for one of your usual miracles.  Thank you

Hello MartynS

She is absolutely delighted with your masterpiece!  And, I must say, so was I.  But between us we have made her very happy.  I have no idea of her financial circumstances but it would have cost her a small fortune to have the photograph restored and the family researched.  Between us we have done it for her and all free of charge.
