Thank you, Tony. You are most kind. :-)

I will obtain the original photograph from my sister in due course and 
scan it on my Cannon PSC. I'll then let you have a copy to play with 
once again if you wish. How do you suggest that I pass same on to you to 
maintain the best quality image for you to work on?

With kind regards,
