This is a very small photo. The cardboard measures 5" tall by 2.5" wide. It is a perfect candidate for restoration since it could be scanned at a very high resolution and blown up to work the fine lines. There was such extensive damage, deep and fine, plus the mildew, but the end result brought the lady to the foreground, once again.

Photo Restoration:

  • major mildew
  • missing pieces
  • cracks
  • deep clothing tear
  • ink drops

This was extremely time consuming since much of the front teeth were missing and no reference photo to aid in recreation. The boy's nose was also severely damaged. The entire photo had stains which were removed from the face and blended in larger areas.

Photo Restoration:

  • severe missing facial features (with no reference photo)
  • uneven & warped background
  • staining across faces (see close up)
  • textured paper

  • tears and discoloration across both faces
  • almost every part of this photo had damage
