Thanks to Fred Tyson of Franklin, Tennessee, who happened upon my post about my beautiful mother-in-law, Marilee, while searching for a small school he attended in the 60s. He made some very nice comments about her photo and shared two very nice re-touched jpeg files that he was so nice to send.

Beautiful, sensitive, photo restoration by Mr Tyson. Did he hand color as well?

Hi Jane, Thanks for taking a look at my blog! I believe Mr. Tyson did a wonderful job with the restoration of Marilee's photo. He did not hand color the photo, however. The original was a colored photograph. I'd love for you to stop by my Tennessee Memories blog too. I have other Shubert photos there.
Take care.
