I might be a bit hopeful on this one... I'm doing some research for friends in Ireland regarding a relative who migrated here in the 1890s, and died in Sydney in 1921. So far I've located the grave, in the paupers' section at Rookwood, and his last address.
They have his shipping documents copied, and there's a listing with no other information in the Catholic section office at Rookwood as to the grave location.
The only photo of this person known to exist, was taken "just after the end of WW1" - and it was mailed to Ireland. The friends had a 600dpi scan done of it, and have sent me a JPG of the scan. They're hoping I can "do something with it" - that might make the figure in the shadowed doorway at least a bit more recognisable. There's very little information in the image, and I can't see how to "enhance" the figure to best advantage...
If anyone has some knowhow or hints - any advice would be most welcome, thank-you. I have Gimp, Photoshop-7, and the usual lineup of tools in Linux.
The image is attached to give an idea of what I'm trying to do.
Thanks, Regards, Dave.
