Question Cracked photo to say the least...

Ok, so I am a photo restoration n00b and such. I use Photoshop CS2 for web graphics mainly, so I'm treading in unknown territory for the most part. I have a friend that asked me to see if I could try to repair a very special family photo for her. I may be in over my head but I would really like to come through for my friend so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The photo I am dealing with had some water damage I think. Anyways, it is 11" x 14" so I had to do a couple scans and merge them which worked out ok. I scanned it at really high DPI(1200). I can't really rescan again if needed because, well the photo is like 1000+ miles away from me now.

Where would be the best place to start with it? I have spent the past 5 or 6 days pouring over tutorials on the net but haven't found anything for something quite like this.

Click here for a closer look at it which you can see the cracks a lot better.

Thanks for your time and assistance.
