Hi David, Irene and Victoria

thank you so much for doing that for me, I never really knew my grandmother so it is lovely to see her properly as a child as this is the only photo there is. It helps me build up a proper picture of her,

thank you again, it is much appreciated

This lady...has the most expressive loving eyes
 ... beautiful..
that is why I didnt work on it - cos her eyes are so different and hold a depth that the others in the family didnt seem to hold....

All the restorations are wonderful and you are so lucky to have them - I just knew I would not manage to sort those lovely eyes.


Hope you dont mind my comments...

Xin

Hi Carolyn

thanks for that she does look better

Hi Xin,

my Gran would have loved you ! She was always very proud of her eyes, saying they were how she caught Pop.  She did have a rather sad early life, her mother dies in childbirth when she was only 3 and her and her brother and sister were raised by an aunt the older lady in the picture. Her mother had married a man considered beneath the family and so there had been no contact with them prior to that. It seems that she had a tough upbringing. The boy in the photo William was killed in the first world war in 1916 and  Zita young girl entered an enclosed order of nuns when she was 22 in Carlisle in England and they never saw each other again.

thanks again to everyone who helped clean Gran up
