Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Allan Family - Falkirk

This photograph was taken around 1960 outside what is now the Alexander Dennis factory in Falkirk.
Any help in fixing the "wrinkles" would be greatly appreciated.

Sincere thanks and appreciation to both Mckha49 and Shunj   I think this will give me enough to work with for now.  My question is answered and complete.

Armed Forces / Battle of Waterloo

I have a William Allan, born in Falkirk in 1797 who served with The Duke of Wellington at this battle.
Where should I go to find his military record. I do not know the regiment.

I want to thank everyone for their input and help. It does look as if my search should perhaps be directed to either Stirling Archives or The Mitchell.  I think this closes my original question. However, if I learn anything more about Memento, I will post it.
Thanks again.
Rob.

Ian.
I'm not sure about the origin of the Name "Bridge of Allan" other than the river it stands on being Allan Water. I did find an "Allan" family there who owned a successful market garden operation and initially thought they were connected to my family, but later discovered that was not so.

Guy.
it is some time since I looked at Memnto, but I do not think her husband has done anything with it and I don't know if he intends to do so. I do know he was devastated by Anne's death.  Such a shame. She was a wonderful woman.

Monica,
She did tons of research for a war memorial for the Town of Camelon. When it was done, she was offered payment by the local council and she flatly refused.  That memorial is now in place and I think it is excellent.
