Looking at original photo,I think the headgear has been added possibly by child scribbling on photo

Such a lovely photo, I was meant to start a new work project this morning, but as soon as i saw the portrait photo i couldn't resist having a go at it. Us restorers are like alcoholics with a beer in front of us we cant resist the temptation - just one more!!. (apologies to any alcoholics for any simile used, it is no laughing matter but nor is being tempted with old photos for restore  ;D


It does look like scribble indeed rather than a hat....


It would also be good to thank all restorers who worked on the photo and those that included headgear might be motivated possibly to make some further alterations for you. You probably would have got around to it, but you also have some other photos that restorers completed that you have not thanked them for the time and effort...

I thought I had thanked all restorers for work done on my photos, I'm quiet new to this webpage, not got the hang off things, I have corrected my mistake, I think the work you all do to these images is fantastic.
I have quiet a large collection of family photos, some are in good condition,some are terrible, the work you do helps preserve them for future generations.

Hi Stephen,


Marvellous


In the past we have all spent time on restores and not received any acknowledgement. I was not shooting you down specifically, far from it as i saw you posted thanks on some other posts, just trying to give a gentle nudge as it does hurt our feelings when nothing comes back from posters of original photos. I run my own little black list now of people who have not thanked all restorers, no point in wasting our time  :P


Thank you so much for going over the links i shared and thanking those posters, they will be motivated to work on any photos you post in future.


Eagerly awaiting more of your family photos  ;)


Best regards


Martyn

Spoke to Annie Wright's daughter , her mothers eyes were blue , there was definitely no headdress on original photo.

Looking at the pattern of creases on the photo, it looks as if someone might have traced around her face and features with a view to maybe transferring the tracing onto paper for a drawing/painting.

Strange that you should mention the headdress - I see a delicate veil with some darker spots around the back and sides of head. They're too regular for blemishes. These veils, often attached to a very small hat or clip, were  fairly fashionable at the time.

I agree with Gadget, hats with veils were fashionable from Victorian times until well after WW2, see picture. I definitely think this is a veil with spots on, sometimes worn over the face, sometimes just bordering the face.
