Very old family photo most likely taken in Blackpool
« on: Thursday 20 April 17 21:46 BST (UK) »
Have had this for such a long time but not sure who it is or which side of family, can it possibly be dated. Many Thanks

Hi Sadge...I would say early 1890s but it's a good idea to show the back if you can.

I have a similar photo (without the plants) and I have an approximate date of 1880s. I have made it a little easier to see.

Thank you for the replies, Treetotal and Trishanne,

Treetotal the back of the picture is the same coulour as the borders on the one I posted very plain no writing of any kind.

Thank you Trishanne for making the photo easier to see, I shall study it further to see if I can work out which side of the family she might be from, not easy .

Never mind Susan it was what I expected as there is no photographer information on the front...the raised sleeve or Kick up was popular from about 1891 but as older people didn't always keep up with fashion it could be a little later.

Great photo. She looks like she has a story or two to tell.

The photo looks to have been kept behind a mount as the edging is less faded.

I think it could be a copy.

Because it is glued on that backing?

Now that you've said that Carol, I think she does look a bit odd stuck in the middle of that floral arrangement - as though she was superimposed. A studio trying to get a bit creative perhaps?  :)

I think it could be a memorial photo as it is edged in black and the photo has no photographer's name.
