Frank William Davis
« on: Monday 16 March 20 11:47 GMT (UK) »

To begin. I wonder if someone could please just sharpen this image. 
I would like to try to identify the uniform. 
I believe the photo would have been taken in Canada, I am uncertain of the date but 1930 ish  :-\ judging by the phone and furniture?  Can't be much later as Frank would have been 60 in 1935.

Hi Suey, In order to be able to sharpen it sufficiently to bring out any fine detail we will need a bigger file. If you could scan the photo at a resolution of 300dpi and a file size of just under 500kbs we would have a better chance of giving you a sharpened image.

Not a lot to go on but perhaps a better scan in jpg format up to  the 500kB limit might help

I already said that, it's obvious from looking at it without downloading it  ???

Thank you Carol and japeflakes, I don't have the original, the picture is as it was sent to me many years ago.  I did think it was a long shot, but thank you both anyway.

Had a try (as you don't have the original) slightly better, regards, John.
