Improving Dad
« on: Saturday 24 March 07 18:28 GMT (UK) »
Please can someone remove the creases and maybe make the colour  a little more natural.
This photo was taken at the "while you wait" studio in Blackpool between 1935 and 1938. The colour was added to the photo.
Many thanks
Linda

Thanks :)
Love the pre-molar joke ;D I'm a dental hygienist!
This is the earliest photo I have of Dad (he is the one standing). I'm not sure this is a good likeness, his army photos taken a few years later are very different. I think the photographer was practicing early air brushing
 ;D
regards

Hello again Molar......all of my teeth are my own.......they're just not a full set .       :-\

Most people who have their picture taken during the war , would have 'aged'.

I have given their jackets a clean up.

........and I'm not going to say .......Arrrrrrrrrrrrr    :D
