This restoration was scanned from the original print. The colour cast was corrected and the image restored to black and white. Scratches, pen marks and other blemishes were removed. The blurry mass over the tile work under the birds was fixed. Also, the facial features of the gentleman in the foreground were enhanced.
Original photo from my own personal collection. Circa 1900-1910s. The gentleman in the doorway is my great-grandfather and the gentleman in the foreground is my great-grand-uncle.
