Can you help date this photo and restore little girl please
« on: Monday 22 January 18 12:49 GMT (UK) »
My sister & I found this photo in our mothers photos some time ago. We are trying to identify who it is and and we are wondering about what date it was and if you can confirm it was a school photo.
When did school photos start to be taken?
I think this must have been a relative.

Also if anyone can restore it as it has been sadly misused then that would be great.

Thank you.

Definitely a school photo. Difficult to date but, going on my own and my sister's school photos, I'd say taken early-mid 1950s

PS - I think individual school photos  started late 1940s-early 50s.

1950s would be my guess too.

Thank you very much for the dates. So looks like the consensus is 1950's. Thought it was late 40's  or into the 50's as I can remember the kilts with straps and the jumpers which itched. I sometimes had a kilt with a 'bodice' which was better as the straps didn't keep dropping down.

Her teeth look like they are secondary ones so wonder what age? Around 8?  :-\ :-\

Thank you both very much for the restores. I am amazed you can restore a photo with so many creases and so quickly. I tried with a program - once only!  ;D ;D. Thank you very  much.

Think I'd say about 8-9. I was still getting my second teeth when I was 11 - I have a school photo at that age with obvious signs of them - my adult incisors grew out above the baby ones*  :-X

I remember those kilts, etc.  :)

* fortunately, they grew down perfectly  ;D
