Fearless Females 2012 – Day 2

March 2 — Post a photo of one of your female ancestors. Who is in the photo? When was it taken? Why did you select this photo?

This photograph is not in terribly good shape. I inherited this from my Grandmother. This is a photograph of my Great Grandmother, Mary Elizabeth ELSTONE, aged circa 18 years.  Mary was born in Bramshott Hampshire in 1880. She married John Matthews in Merrow, Guildford Surrey in 1900 and they raised a family of 11 children. Mary died in 1937 and is buried at the Mount Cemetery Guildford.

    Have you done any photoshopping of this photo? Under the fade, it's a nice photo of her.

    I've been teaching myself photo restoration and would love to see what I could achieve with this photo. Maybe nothing! But it would be fun to give it a go. Please email me if you're interested.
