Rescued from fire, in need of repair
« on: Monday 27 October 08 12:13 GMT (UK) »
I know this picture is in a very bad state, but would it be at all possible for some of you very talented people to have a go at repairing it for me. It was rescued from a house fire, but is the only one that exists.

Thank you all   :)

Couldn't figure out what the two white bulges were, assumed it was fire damage.

I would like to have a go at this, but it may be a few days before I can get it back to you. David.

I assumed those white things were Shakespeare sleeves, or whatever they're called...

I'll try a re-sized version, to see if it looks any clearer
