Photo needs cleaning please
« on: Tuesday 05 June 07 18:28 BST (UK) »
Would love to see this brightened when time permits ... and feel free to add some colour too!

It is the only surviving image of my great-grandmother. Fortunately someone in the family saved it with photography, I haven't seen the original if it exists. It may have been sketched before her marriage. Her hair is down yet she looks older than late teens. Can anyone hazard a guess as to her approximate age? Eliza was born in 1858 married 1878 and died just 2 weeks after the birth of her 14th child in 1901.
With thanks,
Kate
