Those were actually creases, cracks, tears, and folded back top layers of the original. It had been in a glass covered frame and got wet. They dried the outside of the frame, but never lifted the photo out and took care of it. So, when they did try to take it out, the top layer of the paper peeled in places, the cracks were huge, and there were many stains that had turned yellow. It was a true mess. The wall behind her was some kind of backdrop, I believe. It was just easier to maintain the colors and put a texture on it than to try to restore all of it back to the original.
