Default Help with faded, underexposed photo

I would appreciate any help with correcting this old photo of my wife's great grandfather. I am using CS5 and my skills are not nearly where they need to be to fix it. The photo is underexposed, but because of it's age, it is also faded. I am unable to figure out how to fix both problems. My attempts have addressed one of the problems, but always at the expense of the other problem.

Any help/direction would be greatly appreciated. Here is the link to the photo:

Thank you in advance,

Arrow Build density

an easy 'first' try, just to see if it's savable
would be to drag a copy of the layer, and set
the blending mode to "Multiply"
