Even this faded card can tell a story

This sad looking card was recently advertised on ebay, and I decided it required a makeover.  So I brought it and subjected it to the Corel Paint Shop treatment. 

A tweak here and a zap there and the image was transformed - as you can see below the fold.

The picture shows Arthur William Cox, fishmonger and poulterer of Abbots Langley about 100 years ago. He had a shop at 16, the High Street, and his father had started the business, initially at nearby Hunton Bridge in 1866. To celebrate the rebirth of the image I have provided a detailed history of the business - See CAVE, fishmonger of Abbots Langley.
