Smile Natal Police photos

I have recently been given a bag of Natal Police photos, mostly taken around 1890-1904. As you can appreciate most of these are faded due to the passing of time, the good thing is that most of these are annotated with dates, locations and names of personnel.

Some are taken from quite a distance away and are almost useless for uniform and insignia recognition, the only thing is location which may interest some members.

A few are I think are modern copy photographs, two of which I have shown with this post, but does anyone know if there is a way to bring these faded photos back to black and white.

From what I remember when I worked in the print trade, I was told if you wiped developer over the sepia prints they returned to black and white. I have never tried this and now have no access to a darkroom and developer, any ideas welcomed.
