Well, I tried to "restore" this as accurately as i could, without killing anything important. I see some things that could have probably been done different, but I still rather like the outcome.

Lots of cloning, healing, and patching.
Color adjusting, replacing, correcting, stains, etc.
And lastly sharpening. (my own secret style)

Please comment. This is my first post!!!!

UPDATE** - Added more "definition" and fixed brick wall by request!

Very nice work eliminating those curled up cracks and evening out the adjacent tones. Sharpening looks very good. My nitpiks - I'd like to see a bit more definition in the faded faces, and creating a twin where there's detail enough to restore a face is generally a restoration no no. Leaving some of the yellowing helps keep the old look but there are some blue areas (from blue hi-lited cracks) that don't look quite right. I really like the job you did on the cricket player. Brick work looks great except for the odd clone track at right edge. Still a very good restore.

Cool! Interesting and difficult job. I understand this, because I also restore damaged photo.
