Hi Neill....I don't think she is very old maybe late teens early 20s. Shame we can't see her wedding finger. It could be a 21st Birthday photo.
I gave it a bit of a clean for you.
Carol
Many thanks for cleaning the photo up Carol ... she looks beautiful.

I'm researching my family ancestry and it's my 2nd cousin who has this photograph and she lives in New Zealand (I'm in England) and I'm sure she'll be amazed at how good the photograph looks.

I wonder ... can anyone colour the photograph in the colours which they may been in 1870?

Can anyone recommend an easy to use colouring package to see if I can colour some of the other photographs we have?

Kind regards

Neill

Aw Bless you Carol. Been a Yorkshire man (Tyke) the word "Free" is music to my ears.  ;D  I've downloaded it and I'll have a bash. Thank you.

You are welcome...being from the same area we most likely have the same ideals..."don't spend a penny where a halfpenny will do"  ;D
Be warned...it is very addictive and your garden will become a jungle  ;D ;D ;D
