Redditor TheHatersalad transformed a damaged black and white photograph of another Redditor’s grandmother into a a photo that could’ve been taken yesterday. The process took 2,5 hours, but you can watch it all in this 7 minute timelapse.

The owner of the photo, f2ISO100, was very pleased with the result. “I feel – for the first time – like I got to see her, back in time.”
