This photo was originally posted on a Facebook Group so I have no idea as to it's provenance, however, the actual image was in bad shape. It is (obviously!) a photo/scan of an original photograph and was quite poor quality as an image with lots of haloing artifacting. I've removed the vast majority of the water damage and paper wear, repaired interrupted architectural patterns (brickwork, building profiles), increased the contrast phased by area and also upscaled, sharpened and de-noised the whole image. These steps were carried out sympathetically in order to maintain the over all aesthetic of an antique photo.
The result is a cleaner photo that will print pin-sharp at upto size A1 (594mm x 841mm / 23.4" x 33.1") and the project took around 2 hours to complete.
