Thought I would give this a shot and see how it came out.
I boosted the overall contrast by copying the background layer, and setting the layer blend mode to multiply at about 40%. Then I adjusted the contrast, and cleaned up the blemishes using a gaussian blur art history brush. The final step was to clone out the image in front, and replace the girls foot. Since most of the kids were all wearing the same style of shoe, I just copied one, and then adjusted the levels to match the girls other foot. Not too bad for a quick repair.

it could just be my monitor, as i tend to change the gamma from day to day, but in every post i've seen so far, the two girls down on the right, their dresses look somewhat blown out to me? a selected curves maybe?

and i'd also love to see a larger copy of the colored one.

Copy made of original, another copy to add some unsharpen mask then merged. Ran a B/W gradient mask, did some noise reduction etc. Added back the yellow tinge with a color fill layer at low opacity.
