I would welcome opinions on the date of this group photograph, please.

Sadly I have no information about it whatsoever, and this is a scan of the original.

There is a woman in the back row who appears to be wearing some sort of slouch hat such as those worn by the Anzacs.

Any help most appreciated.

As this is head and shoulders only I am struggling to put a date on it  :-\
Might it be mid-late 1860's?

Thanks for you any help you can give  :)

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / CdV of small child, date please?
« on: Tuesday 03 November 20 09:01 GMT (UK)  »
I really can't work out what this child is supposed to be wearing  :-\

I have one other CdV by McAllan on this cardstock, which was dated to late 1860's.

A very similar cardstock appears here, l-h end of row three https://web.archive.org/web/20070203061150/http://www.cartes.freeuk.com/time/back60.htm

Was this vignette style being used at this time?

Any help with dating would be valued.  Many thanks  :)

I'd appreciate confirmation by the experts that I'm on the right track with this one, please

Going by her hairdo I'm thinking its early-mid 1860's?

Am I correct, please. I know that Thomas McAllan was operating as  photographer up here in the early 1860's.

Thanks for any help you can give.

No restoration/colouring required, please  :)

Please can the experts give me a date for this CvD by Thomas McAllan of Hexham

My (very inexpert) idea is that is might be late 1870's?

Your help welcomed as always

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Date please, CdV by Hunter of Hexham
« on: Monday 05 October 20 11:44 BST (UK)  »
Please could I have a date on this lovely lady?

My (inexpert) thought is that it could be late 1880's or possibly very early 1890's.

I know that Hunters were established in Fore Street Hexham by the mid-1880's at least.

The back of the card is completely blank.

Thanks for any help you can give  :)

Yet another McAllan CdV!

Having consulted my newly acquired books I am wondering if this is 1880's? I have two others on this cardstock, one dated to late 1870's, the other to early 1880's.

Thanks for any help you can give  :)

No restoration required please.
I do have full biographical information about Thomas McAllan.

I'm rather pleased with this one. A very smart looking young gentleman  :)
