What Do You Call This Kind of Image? Improvable?

Can anything be done to improve the appearance of this kind of black/white image, other than to make it very very small? What software can make this kind of image more realistic?

Thank you.

Re: What Do You Call This Kind of Image? Improvabl

Difficult to tell from the size of the image here but using an FFT filter in Photoshop may help as well as a bit of selective blurring to blend in. As in first image or you could try downsampling with bicubic smoother and upsampling again to normal size as second example

Probably going to be a lot of work though to get it to look decent. If it is a newspaper clipping contact the paper they may be able to provide a better image?
