It was not meant to be a restoration.
Ok I get your drift.

Sorry kps I prefer WCraig's "original" to your quick and dirty LR job, at least on my monitor... to each their own.
No problem, but Costco and blacks use continuous tone which is not black and white friendly, so I suggested halftone which will be a lost friendlier for that method.

I don't know who told you that, but they're full of it. Was not true for film/wet darkroom, is not true today.

Just find the nearest gallery exhibiting B&W prints. You will not find any halftone prints on the wall.

Exactly. Half tones, when they were/are actually still used (which is next to never), are for publications i.e. newspapers, magazines and the like. True photographic reproduction is continuous/full tone...

Continuous tone is most definitely B&W friendly and has been for years and years... Again not quite sure where you are getting your information from as iMatt stated...

One way or another half tones have absolutely nothing to do with true photographic reproduction of B&W photos and never did.
