Restoring an Old Image

My brother-in-law sent me an old tattered image of his great-grandfather and his family.  He asked if it were possible to restore it and so I took it to task.  It did take some time to put his great-grandmothers chin back on and patch all the missing areas where the paper had worn.  But, the result was much better than I imagined.
