Midlands Road, Raunds
« on: Saturday 16 July 16 08:13 BST (UK) »
I've been scanning some old photos etc from my grandmother's archives of her life in Raunds.  This old picture shows where some of her family there lived.
I would greatly appreciate it if anyone has time to improve the quality of the image for me please.

I threw in just a little bit of colour and light for you.

Good quality size scans will mean much better restores >> hint hint :-)

I reckon the original is quite an important piece of social history for the area. The row of terraced houses behind the 'factory' still survive, as can be seen HERE

Oh  that's great to see, Handypandy.      :)
I think I'll send a copy of the original to someone I know who is very involved with the Raunds Historical Society.
