Macarthurs 1944
« on: Monday 22 February 21 04:26 GMT (UK) »
I have a photo of my wife's family, taken in 1944.

Some of those children are still alive, but I have been assured that photos before the 1960's are permissible.

If it is possible, could this photo be sharpened up. It seems as though it was over exposed, but I am not sure.

Mine was too big in kb to load so had to compress slightly.

A small version and a larger one.  Hope it's OK as I'm on my laptop!

Thank you all for all your efforts.

Until you worked on it, I was not fully aware of just what was not easily seen in the photo. Having seen what you have all managed to do with it, I am astounded at how well it has come out.

I hope it was not too much trouble or time for you, given the problems, but I assure you I am very grateful for all your work.

Thank you for that Peter.

I am very grateful to all of you for the work you put in, as I was not sure if the original was capable of being restored.
