Yes cropped a bit as that was not important, my late mum and dad is what I wanted, and yes I miss them terribly

Had a quick look at you home page some I know how to remove scratches and creases but the colouring is fantastic that you have done. Must have taken a long time even if you know what to start on first.
The editing and layers used must have been quite a task in itself

One thing I have found when asked by friends in the past to work on photos is that not being there at the time a lot of guess work is needed and rarely is it possible to get right colours.

Yes that's larger thanks and it looks like a nice piece of work.
Well done you and I know it must have given you immense satisfaction.

I have a strange relationship with colours and old photographs. Sometimes it can be a bit spooky lol ... Often, when I've been asked to colourise a monochrome photo as a surprise gift for 'Granny' etc I get feedback and find that the colours I've chosen are the very ones they were wearing.

Yes subs or subscribers I remember it well,I joined when it was still general post office (GPO) and drove around in Morris Minor vans. Pull cord switchboards and House exchange systems (HES) and House telephone systems (HTS) were the thing back then.
It then changed to Post Office then to British Telecom and now called Open Reach.

When it went private was its downfall in my opinion ,the pressure was due to shareholders interests and not the engineering staff .

For an example when I joined BT in 1972 putting in a telephone extn, either in a house or office, you were allowed 3.5 hours starting when on site. When I left BT in 1993 they allowed just 1.5 hours for the same job and that included travelling to site which around the London outskirts would take all that time up. Absolutely impossible times but those in charge couldn't care less, it was a terrible situation they put you in which is why I took early retirement.
