Would it be possible to photograph it from the front (or even scan it) and post it in a higher resolution (save up to 500kb file size).
It will help give better results with the restoration.

That looks to me like the original one just enlarged. We can all do that. The curvature and the flare from camera flash is still in the same place!

What Wayne was asking, and I agree, is for you to do a new photo/scan.

It was a scan sent to me from an album that the photo was stuck in and they took a photo of it by mobile and sent me that attachment , I did just enlarge to help if possible though

Since my last post, I've played with it to see what I could get out of it. Here's a first try.

I've done it on my laptop so it might not look the same on a larger screen
