Dating a Medrington photo.
« on: Saturday 24 February 18 15:06 GMT (UK) »
This is the back of a photo, is there any way to date it from the design.   The web site has dates of when they moved to 29  Bold Street,

Is it the back of this photo or are they different?

It`s the same photo. I thought the back might help as well.

It's just that we're used to having the front and back on the same thread.

I found a few different back designs, so thought someone might have known when they were used.

In addition to the dating of the photograph on the other thread (early 1890s) , this back looks like many of those of 1892-4.
