This was a tough one!
I tried to even the skin tones in the guy on the left and bring out the features more in all of them by darkening the RGB. I selected hair, clothes, shoes and adjusted the brighness and smothed them with the clone tool and smudge tool. I tried to build a hint of a boot on the middle guy by cloning and shaping it.
Finally I added a new layer and some white and smudged it to look like smoke from the cigars.

Fine work Sharon,

Good restoration on the badly damaged faces.
I like the cigars, and the smoke was a nice touch.

The great thing about doing this nasty one
is that 99% of future restorations will seem
less daunting and easier to do.

Thanks Matt.
I hope it's only 1% that's more challenging than this one was

Sharon:

The overall cleanup of the photo, and the detail you have brought to the faces, their hands, and their suits is extremely well done on a very difficult restoration.
