Help restore and date photo (1950's?) Grandma Campbell and my aunts
« on: Tuesday 26 December 17 08:01 GMT (UK) »
I would like help with restoring this photo of my Grandma Catherine Agnes Campbell and her three daughters Ann, Mona and Philomena.  My aunts Ann and Mona (standing) had lived in Canada for four years from 1947. My guess on the place is Dublin, Ireland around 1951, but wondered if based on dress style a more exact date could be determined?

Hi

i'm thinking that the blouses, skirts and hair styles of the daughters are more mid to late 1940s rather than 1950s.

I thought that it looked more like the 1940s Gadget before I saw your response.
