Joseph Stevens - help with cleaning & colourisation
« on: Monday 26 February 18 19:36 GMT (UK) »
This is an image of my 2 x great grandfather taken I believe following his appointment as a Baptist Minister in 1878.

Would love to see this either as a cleaner B&W image or even better with colour.

Thanks

I like them both Carol - certainly better than the poor B&W image - you definitely see more character in his face. I'm assuming the image is too poor a quality to add any colour to Joseph, his clothing etc?

Thankyou for what you have done
Keith

Now you are spoiling me - this is so different & arty  :)

Do you think you could do anything with S F Stevens - shopfront from c1910 that I posted?

Keith....when I have a couple of days to spare I might have a go  ;D It's a great photo but there is a good couple of hours work at least on that one, but I'm sure there will be many others who will have a go too.
Just for information, Joseph's beard is known as a "Newgate Frill"
Off to give my eyes a rest  ;) ;D
