and the fag!
 :P

The "Fag" is part of the charm and represents the smoker's habit and character, this was the norm amongst many men in the post war era. Someone descendant may say, on seeing the photo, "I remember Granddad used to like his cigarettes"
 
Why change history.

Hi Roy,

Quote
I uploaded the photograph but only half of it has appeared

The whole photograph has uploaded  :) if you look below the photograph you will see a scroll option to pull the picture to either the left or right.

Regards

Sarah


Is it possible for some one to clean up, lighten and possibly sharpen the images. I wonder if it is possible to make the faces clearer. This is the first time I have seen a photograph of my grandfather. I would like to see more of a face and less of a fuzzy blur. If that is possible. Thank you very much.

Maybe you are missing 'the fag'.   If you want a better result you will have to re-scan the picture but only select your grandfather's face .... then we'll be able to 'Sharpen it ', cheers, Ian

Two from me Roy

Andy, that is amazing. I cannot see the full range of colours which makes like difficult for me when trying to improve or colourise photographs. I got this photograph from a distant relative whilst putting together my family tree. The gentleman on the left is my Grandfather who was a very unwell man. He died when my mother was 14. She has not seen this photograph before but will be blown away when she does. I will also send a copy to her sister, my aunty. They lost touch with their brother, the young man just got married and were both upset to learn, through my research, that he passed away a few years ago. Thank you very much for your hard work. It is more than appreciated.

      A Colour,

Thank you for your hard work, again, I am just blown away when I see this level of skill, thank you. What I do not understand is how you choose a colour. Are you able to get colour from the existing photograph or do you make an educated guess?
