Just had a quick go, using Picasa 2.
A free download from Google.

There must be a million ways of doing this but just out of interest to the restorers could we compare methods. my personal preference is to start by using the threshold tool to find the darkest and lightest parts of the picture. Then using the curves I set the black and white point, then hopefully use the centre dropper to find a neutral grey point.
In this case I followed by just a very minor tweaking on the shaddow/highlight tool. I also think it benefits from cropping the excess background, this was by the way the first thing I always do so that there is no chance of the excess influencing any adjustments,

Similar Denn - except on my software it is called "levals" - alter the 3 colours in there - using the centre arrow to alter the colour what I think looks best.
