Katy Jane Mountain Pennsylvania 1963 - needs a cleanup please
« on: Sunday 21 April 19 21:06 BST (UK) »
Hi all, this old B&W needs a bit of TLC from someone with more skills than I have.
The power lines in the bottom left are fine, but in the RH bottom area there's some scratches and an unsightly curved shaped scrape/stain. Not sure what's caused this - maybe a coffee cup? It's been as is for the past 50+ years.

Would really appreciate all attempts to bring this pic back.

Many thanks .... Sel

Thanks japeflakes and Peter. Both restores look great to me, and certainly much improved on the soiled and worn old original I have. Iím putting together a photo book on the life of my wife's grandfather who emigrated from Wales to the USA, and this is in the area here he lived in Pennsylvania. I truly appreciate the time and effort you put into this work.

One with only repairs and one with some color, text and a slight mist added.
Cheers,

Hi John, Well, these are pretty impressive. I like that you've chosen to leave the original writing around the edges on the B&W one - gives it some 'original' character. And the colour one is quite stunning. Thanks a lot for taking the time to produce these results, I'm most grateful.

Hi Sel,
Here is the colorized one with the original text in case you'd like it.
