Great Uncle George

Hi all, I have a photo of Great Uncle George and it's really messy...
I had a go with it, and the result is ok-ish, but was wondering if anybody else had any ideas. I use PaintShopPro XI by the way. Thanks in advance,


John

Re: Great Uncle George

My best educated guess is it was taken about 1880 or so when he was a "Railway Examiner". I've also got one of Amanda his wife but I thought it'd be cheeky to post both of them at the same time! lol!
