Thank you very much for the dating of the photo. I must admit to being  disappointed it was not around 1904 :'( as it puts a new complexion on it. Both for the person who sent it and myself.

Back to the drawing board for the young lady & baby then. The older lady fits fine with the age etc. She is my Gt. Grandmother.

Thank you for the colouring it always puts a different look to a photo and shows up things that hadn't been noticed before - like the jewellery of the older lady.

I now know the photographer is W.A. Culshaw. He was in Sunderland in the 1901 Census - living 91 Fulwell Rd and the 1911 Census living 18 Thelma St. Sunderland. I am trying to get an idea of when he had a studio at 119 High St.

Thank you all - I appreciate the time you have taken to look, date or colour this photo.

Would you let us know if you are able to pin the date down further please Judy? As I said, I'm no expert and would like to learn how to be more accurate in dating - I find it a pleasing challenge so any feedback would be welcome. I thought that the two ladies in the photo were so alike that they were probably mother and daughter or maybe aunt and niece. Good luck, Chrisann

For those interested  an update about when the photographer W.A. Culshaw, which is who took the photo, was in business.

This was from the Local Studies Centre at Sunderland.

W.A. Culshaw - Photographer
119 High St. West: 1905-06, 1909-10, 1911-12 (also at 268 High St)
2 Walton's Buildings, High St. West: 1915-6, 1921, 1923, 1925 1927.

So that well covers the date of 1910-1912 as has been suggested for the date of the photo.

I will have to do much more research to know who the young lady is.

An update - despite quite a bit of research I  still have not been able to find out who the young lady and the baby were.

I am still thinking the baby just may be my mother born 1904. And the younger lady her mother born 1881.
The blouse with the 'pigeon front' may have been early in the century. She was a dressmaker so could have made it.
The older woman was poor so don't think she will have kept up-to-date. I know she was born 1839 and died in 1924.

Any more ideas?
