My 95 year old Aunt suffers from dementia so our conversations dwell in the past and photographs are a great stimulus. This picture of my Aunt (in the pram) and her sister was taken about 1919. The photo itself was sepia colour and very faint indeed. D.G. (Bedford)
Thanks Tony for preparing the 60th birthday present for my sister. She couldn’t believe it when she opened it, and she LOVES it! (3 B&W childhood photos scanned, restored and framed + personal message) C.C. (Bedford)
This passport photo of me and my 2 boys was taken in 1967. I had it safe in my wallet all these years so it was left in a sorry state. Now, restored and enlarged, it has pride of place in our sitting room and we enjoy looking at it every day. Mr F. (Bedford)
Tony’s restoration and colour enhancement was “magic”! On showing it to my Aunt she was highly delighted and enabled her to remember the location where the photograph was taken! Amazing! Thank you Tony! D.G. (Bedford)
My sister couldn’t believe what we had put together for her. She absolutely loves the framed photos! Thanks so much for your creative ideas to make this such a special birthday present for her.
It is wonderful to have this historic photograph in its restored state, because of my sentimental attachment to it. E. M. (Bedford)
I would recommend Tony’s skill and workmanship to anyone who wishes to have damaged photographs restored to their former glory. E.M. (Bedford)
I asked Tony to restore a photograph of my late father in his RAF uniform that was taken during the Second World War. It had been accidentally damaged, with the glass frame broken. It has been restored in such a way that one cannot tell that there was ever a problem.
Tony has now restored 9 family photos; one from 1920 – a school group with my Mum, uncle and cousin in it. It was in a terrible condition, torn and damaged. We are all thrilled with the results and now have the beautiful, restored copy in our homes. (This is her great great grandfather!) R.B. (Bedford)
