Jennie Power & sisters, Hudson River NY, late 1920s
« on: Monday 25 February 19 21:21 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I am hoping that someone can fix the cracks in this photo of my mother and her three sisters as little girls.  It was taken in the late 1920s along the Hudson River near Albany NY.  They were coming from NYC to visit cousins who lived near Albany.  It can be sepia or b/w, whatever is easiest for you. I love the photo and hope it can be fixed. Thank you.

What a lovely photo and great scan - a joy to work on!

I just love the different expressions on the girls faces - all reflecting just the reaction to having their photos taken at each age.   ;) ;)

Not sure of the topography of the land on the other side of the river - seem to be a couple of ranges of hills.  :-\

DrDude45 and Wiggy--
Thank both so much for these wonderful restorations.  I was thrilled to see them and am so grateful for giving your time and talent to this much-loved family photo.  I wouldn't have believed it possible. 
Many thanks, Alison55

Treetotal and tomkin, thank you so very much for your lovely restorations.  This is truly an embarrassment of riches.  What amazing work you do and how generous you are to share your skills with others.  Many thanks.
