Is this the same woman - Agnes Jeffrey (1819-1873)?
« on: Tuesday 28 November 17 23:53 GMT (UK) »
These photos have been passed down through the generations, and have been generally considered to be those of Agnes (Moscrip) Jeffrey, my g-g-grandmother. She lived in Upper Canada her whole life, most of it in Cobourg. The 4th photo came into my possession recently. I think it is also Agnes, but I am getting conflicting information from the people I received the photo from. Would love to get a consensus here. Is this the same woman?[img]

Using the 2nd and 4th pics... closer than peas in a pod.
Cheers, Peter.

My guess would be the 1st and the 3rd are the same and the 2nd and the 4th are the same...possibly Mother and Daughter. I also suspect that the third photo is a Post Mortem photo.

1st. photo is an 1850's Ambrotype & because of the process used they come out in reverse as you can see from her wedding ring which looks on the wrong hand.
2nd. 1860's CdeV.
3rd. Another Ambrotype & I would suggest later than the 1st. & could be up to early 1860's.
I also agree with Carol that it looks like a pm.
4th. Another 1860's CdeV.
In chronological order I would suggest 1,3,2 & 4.
For my money all the same lady over possibly a 10 year period.

Thanks, Jim1,
For your info, Photo #1 is a daguerreotype (very reflective like a mirror). Would the daguerreotype also be reversed? And photo #3 is an ambrotype (no reflection like the 1st). And re: #3 being a PM - the baby sure looks 'chubby' and healthy to me. And the mother's clothing doesn't look like typical mourning clothes. How sure are you that it is a PM?

As a collector and restorer of photos...in my experience It's unusual for a baby to be photographed sleeping and wearing black.

Agree.
Dags were a similar process but on copper rather than glass as ambro's were so also in reverse.
