Dating please - related to 'Crackle glazed' GM
« on: Wednesday 25 August 10 09:55 BST (UK) »
Dear All,
Can any one date when this photo was taken please from the younger girls dress or type of photo etc. Or give me some idea of the age of the women.

Also can anyone make out the name of the photographer?. I can see the address is 119 High St, Sunderland but can't make out the name. That may also give me a clue.

I am wondering if the younger woman is my 'crackled glazed' grandmother, Florence, born 1879 or her elder sister, Elizabeth born 1866.

If it is the younger one then the baby is almost certainly my mother.

Hi Jeffrey,
sorry i am no expert but - the photo to me looks like ?? about 1890's or later and the younger woman looks like no more than about 16 - 18 years old.   What a magic photo!!  Good luck with it!

Thanks for replies - I thought maybe the baby was looking to heaven - wondering what was happening ;D ;D

Looking at the older lady - does anyone think she is in her mid 50's or in her mid 60's?

Hi Judy,

My ancestors of that era were lucky if they lasted until their 60's!!  And I think people aged quicker than these days - no botox... and speaking of that - the older lady in one way seems "old" from her posture, but she is quite wrinkle free.... I wouldn't be surprised if she was only in her 50's????  But there again, as I said, i am no expert.

I am no expert but looking at the younger woman's hairstyle, blouse and skirt I would have put this photo at 1910-1915. Her age is more difficult - a young looking mid-20s perhaps. I'd say that the older lady is perhaps mid-sixties to early-seventies. Maybe one of the experts will come along and put me right. Chrisann ;-)

The pigeon-front blouse became popular at the turn of the century but the neckline & the older lady's dress style is all wrong for that date.The style briefly reemerged late in the decade when I think this was taken,so agree with the date at around 1910-12.
she looks very young & could pass as a teenager but she has her hair in the adult style although she is wearing a bow which was now a fashion trend for women as well as girls,so if the baby is hers she would have to be early 20's at least.
the older woman I would say is in her 60's.

Hi, I think the older woman's dress is circa 1908 (age 65?), and the young lady is wearing something from circa 1911 (age 23?).

I will compare the fashion to some dated postcards when I have more time.

Cheers, Kristian
