Frank Stevens - dating & colourising please
« on: Tuesday 06 March 18 16:34 GMT (UK) »
This is an image either of my 1st cousin 2x removed or his son. The father was born in 1872 & the son in 1899. The photographers A&G Taylor were granted a royal warrant in 1886 & so I believe were only entitled to call themselves 'photographers to the Queen' from that date. If that is correct then the photo must be of Frank junior - can someone confirm I'm right?

I am also looking for someone to kindly take on the challenge of adding some colour to this sweet photo.

It does look Edwardian but children can be quite difficult to date.
Can we see the back?

Lovely coloured versions from Japeflakes and Rami. I would have said Edwardian too and he looks to be about 10 years old. Another superb image Keith.
