The wonderful beach and view at Tynemouth. My ancestors lived in the town in the late 17c.

A Cabinet Card restoration I did for a colleague. Restore, colourize in PS and printed at 16x20.

Excellent work there, hartman.
It must give you a lot of satisfaction to be able to restore family photos like that.
Great pic of the cat, too. :D

I have been in the restoration business since the early 1970s (wet darkroom) and until recently worked with a Canadian company. hey did all the Americas and Canada & the Far East and I did work from Europe. Work tended to dry p a couple of years ago due to everyone having a go . though not always vey well but it is enough to make a difference. I still do restorations as a business though, on line and off.
We have 3 mad cats. :lol:

Mrs J[the cat lady]fosters cats,The last " Norwegian “ she had went to my best pal . She isn't surprised your cat hates being ignored as the Norwegian is a very demanding breed they normally crave attention ..

Need to see more of your pics hartman - They're always a little different... :wink:

Lovely looking cat!
I don't know what sort of a cat we have, he's a bit mellower now in his old age, but he prefers being ignored.
You used to pat him at your peril. :D

Sounds really interesting. Did you work professionally or just on a commission basis.
You must have had top class gear as at your disposal as it is only in the last decade that the PC has broken into the image scene.
What was the best restore you had to work on?
