Well the first thing I did was apply levels to each individual color channel to increase the contrast of each channel and then I adjusted the color

Re: Restore Old Photo (taken in the 70's)

gave this a shot. changed to lab mode inverted the b channel, back to rgb several levels adjustments and selective color adjustments to try and remove the different colors. could use more work but i ran out of time. The first picture is full size and reduced by save for web lost some of the color. The second picture i down sized to 800 x 637 then saved for web.
