Samuel Stevens (1854-1933) & family - colour request please
« on: Thursday 01 March 18 12:52 GMT (UK) »
This image is of my great granduncle Samuel with his second wife (Mary Ann). The youngest girl is their daughter Frances (who only died last year at 102 years of age). The 3 other girls are Mary Ann's daughters from her first marriage (Adelaide, Hephzibah & Mercy). Frances looks about 10 in the photo to me so that would date it to around 1925.

This has always been one of my favourite photos so it would great to have it coloured & cleaned by you talented people.

Is this the original Keith or has it previously been manipulated? It's only scanned at 72dpi and in greyscale rather than the preferred colour mode which picks up the full tonal range from the darkest to lightest tones. Whilst it's not bad, a 300dpi will bring sharper results and greater detail.

Ooh! don't get too technical with me Carol.

The grayscale was done by me as the original I got from my cousin in NZ had a tint - not sure about the dpi. Attached is the original - hope it helps.

Great colours Jim - wish my cousin (the little girl in the photo) was still alive to see this.

Many thanks
Keith
