Restoration of 1916 Wedding Photo Mr. & Mrs. Clayton
« on: Friday 13 October 17 18:19 BST (UK) »
Please help fix up this photo belonging to my mother in law.  I know she would appreciate it!  It's a wedding photo of Mr. & Mrs. Clayton. I don't know much about it other than the date (1916).

There's just a few rips/creases, otherwise it's not too bad. 

Thank you if anyone can help! :)

Well, that is interesting!  I never thought of that.

The way he's holding his arm almost looks like he has a cast on...

What do others think? Is that a scar on his face or just a mark on the photo?

And thanks, Indiana.59 for the excellent retouching job!
