Damaged photo. Possible sun exposure

I have a picture that was on matte paper. The person who owns the photo has asked for my help and Im not sure where to start. I do not have other pictures to compare to. I scanned it and used digital ice when I scanned it because ther were several cracks in it. Any advice?

Re: Damaged photo. Possible sun exposure

scan in color with all adjustments turned off,

Even if it is a B/W or Grayscale picture it is always better to scan in color since the color channels may contain details that might otherwise get lost...
So change to Color, True Color, Vivid Color or whatever color settings you have.
Turn off "Fare", "Digital Ice" and all dust & scratch removal, and any denoising, despeckle etc.. and off on all automatic settings like levels, brightness/contrast, color, etc.,.

You can also turn the photo 90 degrees and 180 degrees to scan with a different light angle.
