Cautionary tale

A client wanted her old class group photo restored. It was in pretty bad shape, a million tiny cracks all over. She wanted the group as large as possible, so I cropped in pretty far (there was a lot of the building behind them, the ground in front of them, etc.).

So anyway, I send it back and she's delighted, except "where's the 'Class of 1965'? caption?" It was printed on the bottom white border, and about 1" out of the range of my crop. My response was "don't you know when you graduated?" but she was concerned about 50 years from now, and she had a point. I offered to add the text back in and reprint, and she hasn't gotten back to me on that yet.

But I just thought I'd mention this in case it ever comes up for you.

Good point, came real close to doing something similar myself.

However I do take some exception to your description of "old class photo" then later you date it to 1965......

I, for one, would not consider that very old at all. No wonder she fussed at you, its really hard to satisfy kids that young.
