Hi AnnE  :D

Can you post a picture of your photo on here?  It would really help.
Meantime I will search and see what I can find out about the photographer.

Cheers
Prue

Hi Ann  :)
Wow!  Great photo!
Definitely 1860s and most likely the latter part of the decade.
Hope that helps you  :)

James Andrews was my great-grandmother's brother.  He had a studio in Swansea, Wales and was active in the last part of the 19th century.  He was a studio photographer, although I have seen photographs that he took of cityscapes in Wales.  I have several of his photographs.  I believe his studio and much of Swansea was destroyed by bombing raids during the Second World War.
