I would really appreciate anything that can be done to restore this pic from about 1920. I do not wish it to be coloured. - COMPLETED

Thanks for your effort, o doubghaill - I thought, given how damaged the original was, it was pretty good.
But Irene, I have to say I was flabbergasted to see your version. Absolutely superb. Thank you so much. The Kid's 90-year-old daughter in the US will be thrilled when I send her a copy.

No, she's in Decatur, Illinois - the Kid emigrated from Wales to Sparta in 1922 to work in the mines.
