When there is such a large amount of the original picture missing, it can seem pointless trying to restore an image. This photograph from the 1930s shows how years of experience working with similar images can be used to produce a wonderful and unique picture. Complete for the first time, the whole restoration was finished in under a couple of hours to this superb frameable standard.
