Hi I have an old photograph of my grand parents unfortunately it needs some restoration I wonder if anyone can help me with this as it is quite bad.
The Photograph was taken in south wales highly probable Senghenydd as that is where my grandad used to meet in the buffs.
Names of the people are annie ellen thomas and William henry phillips both are deceased.
I have no idea the age of this photograph as my gran looks reasonably young she was born in
1892 and my grandfather 1877.
Names: Thomas, Phillips
Areas: Senghenydd, Abertridwr, Trethomas, Caerau, Glamorganshire
Llandilofawr, Carmarthenshire

I thought 1930s too before I saw Jim's estimate. I have a photo of my Grandma wearing those peep toed sandals in the 1930s but they were also still popular in the 1940s.

Thanks Jim Carol and Pat

Thats great about the era and the restoration it is a definite improvement considering how bad the photo was.  Pat its a shame about the faces do you think we could not improve on this any further or should I wait to see if I get any more response with it.  I really appreciate the effort so far though.

Can you not get the original scanned? Although it is in poor condition, it is very repairable, however the poor photo of the photo makes it extremely difficult.

Hi peter that does look like an improvement thank you.  I will contact my cousin as his father has the original I believe.  I thought it was a scan of the original but will ask him to re-scan it direct to me and see if its any better. 

thank you again
