Rebuilding and image for restoration

Sometimes it’s just got to be rebuilt! We got this image in and the customer wanted the sailor on the right to be one his own in the photograph. It was just a 2″ section of a photograph, and as you can see we had little to work with, but it came together pretty nice anyway. The sailor was a family member, of whom very few photographs were taken at this time, so we need to make this one count. Anyway, the image below shows what we were working with (left) and the resulting photograph (right).
