Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Re: When and why please?

Thank you all...

I've just noticed that the eldest son, sitting on the right is the only one to be wearing a button hole. And also, any significance in having a stick as a prop for him to hold?? He married in 1896. Could this be a group shot before the he gets married?

Thanks...

Both photos have been posted in full. The one on her own is a close up with no background. I thought it looked a little random, as if no thought had gone into background.

 Her husband died in 1908 which means the time between the two would be around  18 years if we think the first is 1890 ish. Does she look like she's aged by 20 years?

On the 1891 census only the youngest child was at home. The other four had started their "careers" and were living elsewhere. They must have planned the photo to all get together??

If you look at both photos closely her mouth droops to the side slightly. They were farmers so yes, she'll have had working hands.

Evening,

Regarding the attached photos, I was wondering if anyone had an idea of dates and also perhaps why photos like this would be taken - just because, or perhaps an occasion?

First photo of family - 2 parents and 5 children. Father seated left born 1840, youngest daughter front left born 1878, oldest son seated right born 1868. I was thinking the photo might be about 1888 ish??

Second photo is the aged mother from the first photo. She was born in 1844. She died in 1927.

Any ideas?

Thanks
James

Excellent, thank you so much. Pamela Joan Hide it is then. Assuming the twins born in 1945 may still be alive any advice how I might find out more?

No he was just starting unimin 1926. I made a mistake. I'm guessing I wouldn't be able to see if he had children as they could still be alive??

Thank you so much. I'll look up the paper articles. Any sign of a marriage??
Would a house surgeon have been quite a respectable job back then? It obviously still is but would it have been specialised in the way surgeons are now?
