Below is my ancestor James William Gibbs (1841-1919), sometime Superintendent for the Great Western Railway in Reading. The photo is badly darkened but I'm hopefull someone can tweak the contrast a bit to improve it (I realize it's never going to be particularly good!).

I've had to reduce the size (in Paint) to get it below to 500KB Rootschat size limit, but I have an original at 1465KB if that helps and you give me a way of getting it to you (email?).

Thanks again for any help!
David
