1. Temporary boost density and contrast with levels layer to see uneven areas of fading.

2. Quick mask selection of each seperate faded area then applied curves layer mask and attempted to balance densities. Deleted temporary levels layer.

3. Retouch major defects using clone, patch, dodge and burn tools

4. Curves layer with mask for faces of the 2 standing men. Try to match density and contrast to seated man

5. Final retouch small spots etc.

6. Apply unsharp mask. Then added mask to skin tones only to soften the effect.

7. Was finished at this stage - however I did not like the cut off on the left hand side so borrowed the information and patched in

You really got a lot of detail from that image, especiallt considering how faded it is. I'm amazed. I looked at it and couldn't see much of anything. Good work!
