Dating greatx2 grandma, or greatx3 grandma (Gott family)
« on: Saturday 12 August 17 15:58 BST (UK) »
Hello again, I have another photo of an old relative I want to date. It could either be Margaret Gott - 1823-1881) or her daughter Sarah Gott (1869-1946)
 The writing on the back has the wrong dates, and are obviously written by a child. I think my auntie wrote that, and she's written that its Sarah, but from the age of the lady and the style of clothes I'm not sure?
Can anyone tell from the clothes she's wearing?

I'd agree with Milliepede.

Disclaimer: Im no expert.

But according to this website:
http://www.playle.com/realphoto/photok.php
the stamp box on the back is the symbol of photo paper manufacturer K Ltd, represented on postcard photos from 1918-1936. The hair and clothing looks to be consistent with what some older women wore in the 1920s. And the 1920s was just about the swan-song era for sepia photos. So, not Margaret, more like a late 50s Sarah is my guess.

Cheers, Peter.

My guess would be late 1920s so too late for Margaret."The KLtd refers to Kodak Limited

Brilliant, thank you for your help! 1920's fits in with the timeline perfectly really!
