Would it be possible to clean up this photo showing construction of the sea wall at Portishead, near Bristol? Thank you.

 If you wait you might get some better ones. See what the original poster thinks

Of course, but if you wait you might get some better ones.

Of course!

I was born and bred in Portishead.
The sea wall (now The Esplanade) was built to encompass the sea-marsh area, and used labour from Bristol. It was built in 1908.

Hi KG, I'm the original poster. I live in Portishead and collect old photos of the town. Tomorrow I was intending to post the restored photo, along with my photo of how the wall looks now on the Portishead Past Facebook page - 'past & present'.
Regards, Jeff
