Yesterday, I asked the people over at the Random Acts of Kindness Photo Restoration Facebook group to add some color to my great-great-grandmother Sarah Jane McGinn's wedding photo from February 25, 1897. The photo is a "tintype." Seated in the middle is Sarah with her parents, James F. McGinn and Rachel (Ellsworth) McGinn, beside her. Below is the original:
Now here it is in color:
Whether those were the actual colors or not that day I'll never know but seeing these old photographs with color added to them sure does bring greater life to moments like these.
Special thanks again to the folks over at Random Acts of Kindness Photo Restoration Facebook group for doing this!
