Damaged photo of my Nana Lea - help needed
« on: Monday 29 April 19 19:59 BST (UK) »
Good Evening

I recently came into possession of the attached photo of my Nana. Sadly, it is quite damaged and showing its age!

I don't have the original, so this is a scanned copy.

I'd be grateful if anyone can 'repair' the damage.

Thank you in advance for any help given.

Kind Regards

David

My thanks to Handypandy, Pat, Terry, DrDude45 and Carol for your time, trouble and expertise in repairing the photo of my Nana. I guess the photo is about 100 years old and was obviously quite badly damaged, so I know it must have been a challenge. The teeth in particular must have been tricky!

I'm very grateful for your efforts and will save them all.

Thank you again and kind regards

David
