Soldier photo restoration needed - possibly John Cannon
« on: Saturday 02 February 19 15:57 GMT (UK) »

Hi:
Can this picture be restored?  I believe it is a John Cannon who was born in England and served in Canada in the 71st Foot Royal Canadian Rifles in the 1840's.  It was in my grandmother's possession when she died and it's believed to be her first husband's grandfather.

Thanks

If that in italics is correct, then 1840 looks more reasonable    :-\  But it can't be 1840s.   ( they wouldn't have been taking photos like this in the 1840s.  Hardly much photography at all at that date.)


  Even 1920s looks a bit early.    :-\ 


Nice work Andy.   :)
