Albert & Catherine are fading
« on: Monday 05 April 21 07:34 BST (UK) »
Dear Restorers, Here’s another faded photo that would benefit from your expert help, to bring back some of the missing detail. No colour required, please.
The couple are my great grandparents (from the German/Danish branch) - Albert and Catherine with 1st child Ann (born 1881), who is riding their pet woolly marsupial bear. It’s a treasured photo, being the only image we have of Albert – it seems my male ancestors were all camera shy.
Thanking you in advance for your interest.

[Historic note: The “woolly marsupial bear” was a favoured family companion in outback Australia in the mid-late1800s, but was generally superseded by the more aggressive “drop-bear” in the early 20th century.]

PS - I tried to centre it as I think the photographer shot a little to the right side
