Also PE why "unsharp" I've never honestly understood the sharp/unsharp thing, why is it beneficial to "unsharpen" something?

A print from the negative looks very good, and originally the photograph reproduced quite well (for 1954) on the original newsprint. What you see in the link in my post is a scan of the old, original front page of the newspaper.

There aren't many versions of the original photo on the internet - as I understand it, Charlie Warner owns the copyright to the photo, and has protected it carefully.

Scroll down to adjacent to the July 30th entry on this link to see a marginally better version: http://www.vancouverhistory.ca/chronology1954.htm
