Early 1890s I would say...I will put this one on my list for tomorrow Keith  ;D
I have so enjoyed working on all your beautiful photos, it's been such a pleasure  :D
Carol

Super - I always look forward to seeing what you create  :D
Gadget says the images I've put in Dropbox are better than this one but they are too big to post on RootsChat. If you PM me your email I will share with these you  ;)

Thanks for your help with the dating of this image.

When I first put an image of great grandfather on here a little while ago I was really only expecting help with dating the image & I was blown away by all the colourisations that people created. It's been a great pleasure sharing the family photos & a delight to see what you & all the others have done with them. I still have a few more.......

That's great Andy - after what Gadget said I wasn't expecting anything as good as this.

Thanks so much
Keith

In case anyone else attempts the one that Keith put up - here's the dropbox version, very slightly compressed. 

I'll get on with it later today, Keith,

Love that larger scan . . . . . .  You can see the character lines on her face . . . .  Makes her seem more 'real'.   Attractive woman wasn't she.

Agreed Wiggy - she has always stood out in my old family photos collection!

Thank you Gadget for posting this version  :)
