Henry and ELizabeth Hopkins for cleaning if possible please and dating
« on: Tuesday 28 November 17 21:00 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I have finally had my glass plate photo digitalised and wondered if someone wouldn't mind having a go at getting rid of the crack down it and blemishes if that is possible.
Also I would like to have a view on what people think the date is.  I am pretty sure it is my Great Great Grandparents Henry and Elizabeth Hopkins who were born 1848 and 1846 respectively!! so I'm guessing probably 1870s but couldn't pin it down any further so any more educated guesses would be great thanks...

Cheers

1880's & I would suggest mid-late decade.
Obviously a middle class couple.

A bit too difficult for me. Started to trash it but thought it best to give you a response to the post. I'm sure others will come in.
If a task is once begun never leave it till it's done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all.

A few weeks ago Andy really captured the feeling you can get after working on something like this for a few hours when he said something to the effect that: although he hadnít quite finished it, he was still losing the will to live. ;D

Neill, late 1880s as Jim says, may not preclude your great-grandparents; although the amount of damage makes it hard to determine their ages, I think the couple could be 40-ish/early 40s.

Cheers, Peter.

Thank you all, very much for the time you took to do this.  It must be a fiddly process when a picture is so marked as this one. YOur efforts are greatly appreciated.

Alos the view of it being 1880s.  That is far more realistic; I guess I went earlier just because of the actual glass plate photo being such an old looking item itself. 
I have a photo taken in 1916 of a wedding of one of their granddaughters and in it is an older couple who I think is these two but I can't be sure.  Are there experts on facial recognition here too? I''l try to attach their faces for an opinion anyway.

I would say it's highly likely that it's the same couple.
