We're a bit away from the point of joboy's original post but here's my own contribution (untouched).  One set of my maternal great grandparents.

All these photos are fantastic to look at. :)  
I'm forever looking at albums in junk shops etc but it's even better when you see a photo knowing that it is still with the family.
Makes me sad when I see old albums for sale - I always think that the person that owned them must have been alone at the end of their life. :(

What interesting photographs - I love looking at them.

This one is probably my oldest and he has appeared on RC before - in fact he has had several clean-ups.  But thought I would post him here in all his original glory.  I have an inkling who he might be but I cannot prove it.

Dolls and restoration board........

This wee lassie is another example of a wee doll at the time.  She's only related to me through marriage but it's such a nice photo.

I want to post this, not only to compare it with the other beautiful photos of kids that you've posted, but also to advertise the benefits of the restoration board.

There is so much talent there.  


Modified. 
PS I hasten to add that the restored photo is not my work.  You will find out soon enough who the artists are.

You keep digging.  One of these days, you'll meet a relly that has loads of photos.
And that one you have... brilliant. 
Some folk have none.

Yes - it does happen!! The second photo I posted http://www.rootschat.com/links/044t/ (together with several others) was sent to me by a contact made through Genes Reunited. The funny thing was that she didn't know exactly who they were. I was able to confirm their identities to her because I already had a photo of them when they were older (shown on the previous post)

My G G Grandparents c 1860.  Pic was together at some point, I think.

Richard was born 1820 Harriet was born 1834. This picture of Richard is also in The Worcester City Museum.  The Worcester Soldier Exhibition, along with his medals.  Am very proud of it and the history relating to him I have discovered.

Cas,

The clock? or ornamentation behind them certainly looks the same.
There's another for someone to work on - get them both b/w or sepia and join them as the 1 photo.
Sounds easy to me but there is no chance I could do that.
