Sporting achievements - Grandparents Clement Pope
« on: Thursday 02 May 19 09:01 BST (UK) »
Hi
Please find attached old newspaper cuttings of my Grandparents Clement Pope (Sileby Victoria FC 1910) and WJ Cliff (Sileby Town CC 1902). Is it possible to enhance/restore these photographs?

Many thanks

Mick Pope

Not a great deal of improvement, perhaps if you rescan at 300 dpi and re post, it may be possible to get a better outcome, regards, John.
