Hi japeflakes:

As I see the different cleanups, different things pop out at me.
Pat's: I immediately noticed his face (when I previously just looked at the entire photo).
Rami's:  I suddenly noticed his eyebrows and smile.
Yours:  My attention was drawn straight away to his eyes.  As an adult, when he smiled, his eyes seemed to have a sparkle in them.  When he retired, he volunteered a few times to be a Santa.  His sparkly eyes and bushy eyebrows really fit the part.  ;D

Thank you for your time and trouble.  I am so fortunate to have such beautiful copies to save.  Lisa

Hi Yvonne:

Thank you for your restore as well.  I can't believe how well you've all eliminated the tears and repaired the missing piece!

This will sound silly but if one doesn't ask, one won't learn  ;) could his "baby teeth" be showing or is the shiny spot just his tongue or gums?  I've looked at the original with a magnifying glass and I just can't tell.  (It could be his tongue as it might be too high for teeth?)

Thank you Yvonne for your work.  As you can see, I noticed the possibility of seeing teeth.  It's funny how each photo brings out something different that strikes me.


I didn't think of asking before - would anyone be able to guess his age when the photograph was taken, please?  I am terrible with guessing the age of anyone!  Thank you, Lisa
