Faded photo

This photo has deteriorated since it was taken in the 1970s. By clicking on the right-hand thumbnail, you can get a sense of the original image, here reproduced by digital enhancement. Such clever manipulation of a photograph is not always possible and genealogists are constantly frustrated by the deterioration of old documents and photographs.
