I've just uploaded a couple, which are waiting for moderator approval.

Sadly the ones of my aunt's wedding are too big a filesize.

Hi Lisa...That's good....Here are the guidelines to help you to reduced the file size:

I'm sending one - just needs some cleaning up.  It's a building, not people, but of historical interest.

Just have to comment that it's so nice of you all to offer this service.  Many photos are 'one-off' specimens and so precious that it is nice to get a 'new' one.  Someone "gave me back" my dad a few years ago and when I get organised I'm going to ask them to do the same for my mum.  So a big thank you in advance.

I think I can speak for all the restorers when I say we just love doing them. It is so interesting to see an image emerge as clean as we can make it, without blurs, scratches, tears etc. Please keep sending your photos, we will do the best we can with them.

How nice of you to say  :-*...it's a very rewarding hobby and gives pleasure to both the posters and the restorers and it helps to preserve the old images for future generations to appreciate.
