My first try at fixing Grandma

This is a picture from about 1900. Looking for constructive suggestions, etc. Thanks P.S. looks better at higher resolution but don't have a web page.

very nice on the particle/scratch removal. i believe i'd bring the lights up a bit, though.

I hope you don't mind me having a go at this.
You have removed the scratches very well great job.
If you look at the 1st attached I just applied auto levels, and as you can see there is still quite a lot of staining in the picture.
The 2nd I converted to greyscale with channel mixer, and the staining disappears. Maybe you might like to try that method.
If you like the sepia toning of the original you could always apply it back in, as a duotone maybe?

Hope this helps

The only other slight problem I can see is that her hair which is rather hard to see in the original has been cloned away on the right hand side.
