On closer inspection, it emerged that the photo restoration and photo repair issues were not confined to the scratches and tears. There was also faint orange spotting across the photo caused by imperfect washing of the chemicals when the photo was first developed. And, the photo had become faded over time - and some color had been drained away. For a certain generation of photos the cyan (blue) ink is the first to fade. In some case the loss is so extreme the photo looks red. Here the loss was less serious.
Once the photo repair was done we sent this "before and after" preview to the client who gave us their approval to go ahead and print. Since the original was an 8" x 10" glossy that is the photo we made for them. In addition, we delivered a digital print that can be shared and even reprinted!
