Elizabeth Crossley, possible clean up of photo WRY Crossley
« on: Saturday 26 January 19 00:09 GMT (UK) »
Elizabeth Crossley, my great-grandmother, 1851-1929, mother of at least 4 illegitimate children (none of whom she brought up herself), , in trouble for concealing the birth and death of a child, avoider of all things official all her life, with the exception of appearing on the electoral roll for several years after her death! General all-round mystery who refuses to let me find out anything about her!!! (and wearing a wedding ring here, even though she never married). I think I might try a seance next...
Date?  Clean up photo? any thoughts at all on this mystery woman I've been chasing all my life!

Thanks  :)

I was doing some 'arty' effects on some pics that I'd taken so when I cleaned this one up, I decided to try some old camera/printing effects. This one was using Nik Software, Silver Effects:

I've had the collection when they were owned by Nik but they seem to have gone to dxo via Google.

Many thanks for the restores, it's amazing what you can do!  Someone on our local forum was wondering about the prop; I assumed a chair arm, someone mentioned a prayer stool (I find that unlikely! but you never know).
