Do you think all related or?
I think their looks/dress says "maybe/maybe not/probably" sisters. But I don't think you would see such familiarity in a pose if they weren't sisters. So, yes! :D

There is big age gap between them so either there were siblings who died in between or the little one could be their niece. I don't see a strong resemblance between the older girls and the little one as she is much darker.

Or perhaps boys in between, photographed separately? :) Lots of possibilities unless you have some contenders in mind, JF.

Great stuff team.  At the moment who they were is a mystery but the more info I have the more likely I might be able to name the 3 hat girls. ALL ideas add to the "fact file" and the restores give new life to an old re-discovered small photo.

Could the one in the middle have been adopted maybe?  I think he/she looks very different and seems to have darker skin and big dark eyes (as Carol has commented) - Very attractive looking.  the two on the side seem to be showing her/him off.   

I think on balance I would say her . . . . ;)

My euro's worth  :)

It's circa 1905. The young one is a boy and there is a similarity between him and the girl on the right.  The girl on the left has some different features but, on balance, he's their little brother.

I have two postcard photos of children dressed similarly dated 1903 and 1905.
Carol

I would agree with that date Carol.
