Dating photograph please I. Cox 5 Sandy Hill Woolwich kent
« on: Wednesday 07 March 18 20:58 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
 I have been trying to find info regarding the photographer  I. Cox 5 Sandy Hill Woolwich kent,  (Not sure if it is I. or J. Cox) in order to date this photograph that I have attached.  I have no idea who the gentleman is, but if I knew a rough date I might be able to identify him through a process of elinination. I have not so far found any info on Cox Photographers, maybe someone else will have some luck.
Regards Quester

I couldn't find any info about J. Cox but this will bring it back up the board for Jim to look at, I'm not that good at dating men's clothing.

It could be 1890s but, like Carol, I'm not good  at dating men's photographs.

Hoping Jim will come  along.

In 1901 5 Sandy Hill is occupied by a John Cox and his family but his occupation is Shoe maker
RG13/564 f147 p45. 

He is not at that address on the 1891 census.

Hi Rosie,
Thank you so much. How strange that he is listed as a shoemaker. I wonder whether his wife or one of his children was a photographer? So maybe the photo is c 1900 or just before? Regards Quester

In 1901 his wife Mary had no occupation listed.  The other children who were at work were all Machine Hand's - one was James age 29, no other J's & no photographers.

Very strange, Rossie, I've looked from 1871 onward and there doesn't appear to be any Coxes or photographers there except the 1901 instance.

Interestingly on the last census No 5 isn't listed.
