Old 'Smoking Concert' poster needs some TLC
« on: Monday 18 February 19 13:01 GMT (UK) »
Hello to all our special Rootschat photo restorers,

This is an invitation originally posted up in a workplace in Cardiff (or Swansea) back in 1929, to farewell my wife's grandfather on his imminent departure to America.

The original is 330mm wide x 450mm long - too big for my scanner, so I had it scanned at a local printers/graphic art shop. They supplied me with two images - (a) at 400x400dpi (4MB) and the (b) at 600x600 dpi (35MB).

The image here is a reduced file size from (b).

I would greatly appreciate any assistance from the talented restorers on the Forum in improving its current look.

The hotel name with a letter or two missing is 'Adelphi'

Many thanks .... Sel James
