Post by: Ben Ton on Thursday 04 August 22 14:17 BST (UK)
I was wondering if the picture could be fixed.

Ben, if you could rescan this at a higher resolution (say 600dpi), at "RGB colour" rather than "Greyscale", and then repost it (using a different name: just add say "Mark 2" to its name) then restorers will have a much better chance of creating a decent improved version for you.

As has been said, needs a better scan. Until then:

As suggested, I scanned this picture in at 600.  I wonder if it could be fixed, it would mean so much to me.  Thank you in advance.
