Please could colour be added to last photo of Eliza Simpson
« on: Friday 15 December 17 12:47 GMT (UK) »
This is the last photo before she died of my Great Grandmother Eliza who was born in1869.  (See previous post).  I was wondering if it would be possible for colour to be added to the photo. This is a copy which I have had copied at photography shop from an original belonging to my cousin. 

Thank you in antipation. :)

Photo seems to have attached side ways.  Don't know if this can be corrected.  Whoops! :(

Thank you Loord.  Much appreciated!  This was so kind of you to do this so quickly too. :)

I am guessing this would have been taken in the 1940s as Eliza died in 1946.  Although, by the long dress it looks like from an earlier time.  Perhaps Eliza just like familiar outfits from years gone by.

Merry Christmas, and many thanks again! :)

I really think this photo is dated well before 1940. I am not very good at dating photos, but this lady is wearing a dress similar to a photo  I have of my grandmother which is dated 1914. I do hope somebody can date this better than me, If you change the title of your photo to ask for the date as well, you should get the experts to help you.
Here's a coloured version.
