Thank you all! I'm really laughing about the one with the couple inserted on the settee. They are from an entirely different family! But, who would know but me, right?

The reflection in the painting is the same issue we have these days. So, I guess it's NOT an oil painting or it would not have glass. Good job Gadget in removing said reflection. I would really like to be able to get a better view of the subjects in the other wall hangings as well as the person in the photograph on the table...but, I may be asking for the moon on that!

Wouldn't it be interesting to know what colors were in that wallpaper! Granny died in 1903 and my grandfather was born 1888, so this is likely taken sometime in the 1890's. The design makes me think of William Morris.

And, Tommy....the more I look at this colorized one the more I like it. Especially the purple, since it's the season and all. Almost Lent! Fat Tuesday quickly approaching!

Let me try this again after finding the original of my gg grandparents sitting room. My grandfather had posted on the back "Granny Ingham's home, Heaton Lodge. spent many wonderful days there as a child."

I'm hoping this version is workable and look forward to any improvements that will bring it back to life. Fingers crossed it gets accepted !!!

Ok, y'awl are having just way too much fun with this now! So, in an attempt to tap into your skills and creative juices, I am going to post....well re-post actually...a photo of my gg grandparents sitting room. I have finally found the original so perhaps it will be something you can work with. Stay tuned as I'm trying to size it now.

Thank you again for such great restorations!!

Oh....and my goodness! I love the artistic license you took to merge the two subjects into a new closeup pose. These are really great, thanks so much!

Oh goodness, you two ladies never fail to impress! What lovely interpretations!!

Thanks to all of the restorers who took on this challenging assignment! People are "wowed" when I show them what you have done. The personal time you dedicate to bringing our cherished memories to life shows your dedication to your "craft" and selflessness in helping others. So much appreciated!

Stay safe everyone!

Thank you Gadget. Luckily we live in a smaller community so not as bad as some of the urban areas. But I have a NOW 6 month old first grandchild I have not been able to hold yet. That creates great sadness.

I am leaving the post open through the weekend just in case you and others have been working on it.

Yes, Great job Peter! As some of my favorite restorers have already commented you have done a fantastic job on a very challenging subject. How this photo got in such bad shape is a mystery but your dedication to cleaning it up is more than anyone can ask! Thank you, thank you, thank you! It was such a treat to wake up to this today (on the other side of the pond). It can now go into the family album as one of the earliest photos we have of this couple...and we can clearly see their faces and the family resemblance to the current generation! So....they live again!

Thanks to all you restorers who took the time to work on this challenge. I am very appreciative! Stay safe all of you!
