Attached is a photo I received from my dad's cousin, it's my g grandmother b 1877 dads cousin THINKS she would be about 15? Also is that really the shoulders of her dress or something else???

I have cleaned it up but the copy was very dark.

Thanks for any help you can give.


Hi, I bought a Victorian photo album a few years ago, it appears to have belonged to a family with the names Wharram, Clarke and Stork. A few have the names written on this one just says Granny and Grandad Wharram. I am hoping someone can help with a date for the attached photo and perhaps a guess at the ages of the adults.

Many thanks in advance. :)


Where is Comforts request to merge two photos ???  ??? I've just spent nearly 2 hours on it and can't see it anywhere to allow me to post.


Stirlingshire / Mackay birth at Stronach House, Gartmore, in 1924
« on: Friday 22 August 14 10:37 BST (UK)  »
I have a copy of my friends fathers birth certificate, he was born illigitimate on 21/5/1924 at Stronach House, Gartmore, Parish of Menteith, County of Perth..... (I wasn't sure if this should have been on the Perth board or not?)

We know his mother was a Mary Mackay whose residence at that time was Onslow Drive, Dennistoun, Glasgow.  The query is, has anyone heard of Stronach House....and was it some sort of mother/baby home that she was perhaps sent to.

We can find nothing on google but hoping someone on Roots can help. :)

Many thanks in advance.

These are my latest buys and I haven't got a clue on dates. First one is much clearer in 'real life' the black blob hiding her feet and legs is a brolly.

The third one looks like it has been in a case...alas no longer but there is glass covering the whole thing.

Also are they ambrotypes, I can never tell!

Many thanks


Oh! they are all much clearer than they have come out on here.
