Please restore this photo of my grandmother Madge McBride
« on: Wednesday 15 July 20 18:16 BST (UK) »
Would anyone like to have a crack at restoring this one?  We think it dates from around 1915.

12 minutes past 10 (time photo was taken).
Feel free anyone to use my efforts to further edit.

Many thanks to all the restorers. Yesterday this was just a very faded, creased and spotted sepia photo on a 5" x 3" postcard and it has now been really brought back to life by your efforts. What a delight!
