Turn back the ravages of time on this early 19th century
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.
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.
This was a precious photo—the only photo of mother and son. There was extensive damage to both faces. The owner opted to return to the original true black and white (minus the aging/yellow).
