This is my sketched impression of what dobfarm might be seeing. It's a rough sketch type view. 

My eyes are very sore now.

PS - I see Dob's gone off line now   :-X

I'd been for my afternoon lockdown cat nap.

 Yes! Gadget -something like your image sketch.

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth

Well if she wasn't wearing a hat like that, she damn well ought to have, suiting her as well as it does...

I'll take it off tomorrow. My eyes can't do more than a couple of hours a day.

To stay with originality-I don't think one will improve on untouched reply #12 by Gadget, a hat is a hat and ladies do/did change their hats- so stick a similar hat from the scuff marks on the image in context with the rest of the image on reply #12 will give a full top off (so to speak) on the original face to give Jill and go alongside the good artistic improved restored images.

If its a hat ? the scratch marks have not disfigured the face much so and would do less to a solid mass of a hat ? (If its a hat ?).

I'm trying to work on the eyes - forehead and nose at the moment using copy and paste also spray can. Its too damaged to use photo restoration tools to keep near originality and will/could take a while to do, then use restoreation tools on it.

That's what we're all seeing, DF.  What program are you using?
