I agree with the possibility and also with Caitlin's suggestion about not for all contests but reserved for those similar to this one, where it is necessary to have a great deal of skill and experience at restoring very damaged images as this one.
It was a great and most interesting challenge, thanks T-Paul !

well, i set out to prove myself right or wrong about the glasses/pinze-nez question. doug and kurt both made some very good points, so i wanted to see if i could find something more definitive to argue this one way or another. mind you, i dont really care if my original speculation is right or wrong; i just wanted to know.

lol. i found out nothing. i could see the arguement either way. i did find an interesting web site and some very good pics on 'spectacles', however. this is the addy for the type of spectacle i originally thought our gentleman was wearing. i'm no longer so convinced. http://www.eyeglasseswarehouse.com/ridingtemples.html

oh, and the original contest pic lists it as a library of congress pic, but i couldnt find it there

Thanks Craig. I was unable to find examples of 19th century specs exactly the same as these, but they were probably pretty rare.

The Specs Debate!

I found these, just to put the cat among the pidgeons.

Scroll down to "Golden Spectacles" image

Specs


What do you reckon?
