Monkey Restoration

Bought this Victorian oil painting of a monkey washing a cat, from an antiques market.
The painting had a small rip and was smoke damaged.
I commissioned a restoration by Bloomfieldart in Manchester & pretty happy with the results!!

Found the first photograph at an antiques fair, taken in 1976 near to my home in Manchester .
The second photograph I took today, 4th May 2013 – at the same location, luckily there was a white car there too!
