Clifton Hotel, Invercargill
« on: Saturday 02 March 19 21:26 GMT (UK) »
Old Clifton Hotel on corner of Avon Road and Bluff Road, Invercargill.  Later became a shop then in the 1960's was demolished.  Today in 2019 only remnants of concrete foundation remain.

Close to Clifton Primary School that I attended in the 1950's / 1960's.  This school was closed in the 1980's.

Photograph dates pre 1900.  Roads today are bitumen and major highway between Invercargill and Bluff.

Would there be a kind person please who can clean and tidy the photograph?  There is a reflection near bottom left corner that needs to be removed.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Hi Alex, I have cleaned your photo up a little, so hope it's a bit clearer for you. If you are able to rescan at a higher resolution, it would be possible to greatly improve the image.

Many thanks for your time and effort.  Your effort is much appreciated.

I downloaded photograph to my computer straight from my camera at 2.70MB.  Roots Chat only allow a file size of 500kb maximum when uploading to this forum, so I reduced the size to 425 kb.


Will up load again to maxium 500 kb.  Just hope I got all this correct!!

Again thank you.

Looks looks to be early 1890s.

Very low resolution but it is slightly clearer/sharper by making it smaller.   :-\

Good work thank you.

Yes photograph was located inside a frame / glass mounted fixed high on a wall in a local establishment.  Wasn't allowed to remove and had to photograph from some  5 - 6 feet away whilst standing on a chair.

Great work much appreciated, thank you.

Cheers
