Help with dating a lowe photo please
« on: Thursday 15 February 18 15:42 GMT (UK) »
I think this may be either Hannah Lowe 1842 to 1868 or her sister Sarah Lowe 1839 to 1915. I have included a scan of the back of the photo. From her clothing are there any ideas as to date?
Thanks

1870's. The picture alone doesn't give any more clues as this how women including girls dressed throughout that decade.
However the back is typically mid-late decade but as this still has the square corners of the earlier part I would suggest this is 1875 +/- 2 years.
Her skirt length suggests she's around 14/15.

Many thanks Jim1. On those dates it's not who I thought it was, time for a rethink.

If you want any restoring and cleaning done on your photo Caw, maybe you could change the original title to include 'restoration' - otherwise we probably shouldn't touch it.   

It is a pretty good scan!  ;)

Thanks Wiggy, but I'll probably have a go at restoration myself when I get a bit of time.
