Passengers on Aquitania 1929 - Restoration required please
« on: Monday 19 February 18 07:59 GMT (UK) »
Hi folks ..... I have recently received this photo which had been kept in a filing cabinet with a cache of family history treasures for the last 30 years. My wife's grandfather is 4th from the left - in the trenchcoat.
I would appreciate a tidy up please from someone more capable than me.
I'm pretty sure there are no living people in this pic ...  the voyage was in 1929 and everyone in the pic appears likely born before 1910.
Thanks for the help in this.

My pleasure Sel...wonderful image and you are lucky to have it. I really enjoyed working on it. It must have cost a pretty penny to be a passenger on this ship in 1929 during the time of the depression.

Yes, Carol, I have been very lucky, pure serendipity .... this pic (along with other photos and memorabilia of my wife's grandfather) came to light only recently after a Rootschat response to a post I made back in 2014! They had been sitting in a filing cabinet  in a home in western Pennsylvania for a long time and were gladly gifted to me by the owner.
Thanks again .... Sel
