Re: mission impossible??

If you have access to the original photo try turning the picture 180 degrees and scanning again. then bring both photos into photoshop as two layers in the same picture and set the top layer to either darken or lighten to remove most of the cracks. If you dont have access to the photo try duplicating the layer set the top layer to darken chose the move tool and tap the right arrow key twice this will remove most of the cracks on the building.

you could try coping them from the original layer and pasting to a new layer, or maybe try finding a font that looks similar and using it to replace the words.
