My grandmother told this is my Great grandmother's Confirmation photo. So probably taken abt. 1891 or '92 when she was 11 or 12 years old.

Hi, missmilliemaam,
Your great-grandmother's face is badly damaged and faded. To give us the best chance of teasing out as much original detail as possible would you able to re-scan it at a higher resolution, please. You may have to play around with the resolution a bit to keep it under Rootschat's 500 kb file size limit, and just remember to rename it when you repost it  (just add Take 2 or something to the name).
Cheers,
Peter

If you have this photo can you please scan it at a higher resolution. At the moment the only feature I can see on her face is one eye.  A higher resolution will possible show more features.
