Actually, this is a mid 1880s photo and by that time the emulsions were good enough that  shutter speed was only a fraction of a second. So whatever shows in the photo is most probably the natural feature of the sitter.

Cheers,

Hi China:

The couple in the photo were married in 1888, and my mum and I were just discussing when the photo might have been taken (possibly before their marriage, or shortly after).

Thank you for letting me know about it being a possible feature of the sitter.  I haven't yet been able to figure out if my ancestor was related to the lady in the other photo, nor rule out that she wasn't.  But, I appreciate hearing that it probably was a natural feature.   :)

Thank you,
Lisa

I was wondering if this photo of Mary Matilda Stewart could be dated. Thank you.

Mary Matilda Stewart photograph dating
« Reply #14 on: Wednesday 22 January 14 12:54 GMT (UK) »
Good morning. I'm a new user on Rootschat, so please accept my apology, in advance, for my lack of skills. A friend asked if I would share my photograph on this website. The photograph is of my great grandmother, Mary Matilda Stewart (Stuart) b1847-d1929. I believe she was born in St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, although she spent most of her adult life operating a market garden in Lambton Mills, York West, Ontario, Canada, with her 7 surviving children after she was widowed. She is buried at St Georges on the Hill, in Islington, Ontario. I believe both of her parents were from Ireland. My father never met his grandmother since she died in Ontario a few weeks after his birth in Manitoba, Canada; however, her picture always hung in our farmhouse. I was wondering what you would need to attempt to date this photo. Thank you for your help.

Hello Loriann & welcome
I can tell you this is Edwardian & probably the second half 1905-10 & probably closer to 1910.
