that's fine with me. as i said it's more of an artistic subjective thing and when it comes to this the map maker is generally given the right to do as he pleases.

i have no idea what your layers are and what you have there or even how you obtained that image. i mean, i know you extracted it from an old postcard but the extraction method is very important.
anyway the easiest method without having access to layers is to simply take a 2-3 px brush and draw over that fuzzy area.
the letters are bulky and with lots of straight lines so even with a mouse it should be very easy to trace over them especially if you zoom in on each letter. i suppose many other methods can be found but this one seemed the easiest.
2px lighter black
2px the shade of grey that you have on the other letters
