Clara & Ada in Georgetown
« on: Sunday 10 January 21 05:02 GMT (UK) »
My grandmother Clara and her older sister Ada were born in Georgetown, North Queensland. From the ages of the girls, Id say the photo was taken about 1896-97.  It looks as if the photographer has stepped outside and pulled some branches off a gum tree to festoon around the studio. :D
In the lower centre there is a crack in the card, and like many of my photos, it is rather faded and a bit spotted. I hope one of you talented restorers might like to have a go at improving it. Thanks.

A quick tone boost and partial clean.
Not sure if I'll have time to finish it - Painting the hallway.
Others welcome to build on this one  :)

Many thanks to you Waynenort, Japeflakes and Handypandy. Damage repaired, a clean and a boost in tone makes a terrific improvement - looks great. Well done.

My try. I wonder if they were an inspiration for Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. :)

Thank you heaps Pat and Peter for spending your valuable time working on my photo. I love the results.  :)
Both colours are very lovely Pat. I agree Peter, there is something in the hanging eucalypt foliage that is reminiscent of the Snugglepot illustrations.
Thanks everyone.
