Hi Wiggy, Many thanks for your efforts for this is a terrific result. I do wish I had the skills and tools to do this.
You and your fellow restorers provide a great service to this Forum.
I hope you continue to enjoy your 'play' time as much as I do in seeing the results of your efforts.
Cheers...... Sel

I see the daughter is Gina - I didn't notice that at first and thought I was reading  Carrie, Jean and Joyce.      ;)

Wiggy, the daughter is Georgina (aka Gina and more commonly Jean), so your reading is 20/20! And thanks for taking the time to include  the written message - itís an important part of the pic.
Cheers .... Sel

Thank you jansel 70 for taking the trouble to provide the two new scans. For anyone that is interested, I thought that I would share this. I have over-layered one on top of the other and reduced the opacity of the top layer so that the bottom layer shows through. As you can see, the shadows from the scanning are pretty much eliminated, leaving a much better starting point and detail for a restore. Having said that, some excellent restores already!

Hi Handypandy and Skippy, Iím very grateful for these restores, both lovely results.
I must admit Iíve been rather overwhelmed with the wonderful response Iíve had since I posted two pics in two days here on Rootschat.
Iím just so impressed with the time, and thoughtfulness that goes into this 'pro bono' work. We, the posters of photos, are just so lucky to such a band of dedicated restorers who give their time so generously.
Thank you to all who have responded. There has been much joy in our family when we see life returned to a dregrading old photo, which will now be enjoyed so much more  by our future generations.

Kind regards ...... Sel

We count ourselves lucky when we get really good scans to work with!   :D  It makes the effort a pleasure.
