Restoring photo of my great great grandmother Elizabeth Robertson
« on: Sunday 10 February 19 01:07 GMT (UK) »
Good Morning everyone,
Attached is a photo of my great great grandmother Elizabeth Robertson on her wedding day to Thomas Britton July 1879 in New South Wales.

My hope is that it can be made a bit clearer, thanks in advance
Marion
ps its a very small photo 31/2 inches by 2 1/4 inches, I'm not sure if it's a carte de vis

Hi Wiggy,
Thanks so much, it looks wonderful.

Elizabeth was 28 when she married, wish I looked that good.

Hi Marion and welcome to Rootschat, this is so lovely that I didn't want to alter it too much and loose the texture.I have cleaned a few spots and straightened it.
