Please apply your skill with this one.
Can you also compare her to T2.1 and tell me if you think they are related - or even the same person?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks to everybody for your work and comments on this photo: Romilly and China for dating; Steve, Tommy, Pat, and Irene for your TLC - I love all versions!
Tommy I think you're right about her wearing white gloves. I could imagine her hands were workworn and the wearing of gloves was to hide this - they are not exactly 'delicate' looking hands are they?
I'm also glad that so many of you like the photos I post.
Sarah, I am not sure that I want to give names for posts I make.

The long silence from me was because I've been 'handicapped' for months as I fell and broke my wrists (ended up with OP and Titan plates and screws in them) and even with loads of Ergotherapy and Physio it has taken until recently to be able to work on my computer without difficulty. The only good thing was that there wasn't much pain.and I have full mobility once again.

Hi everyone

Edith needs a clean and tidy please. Some gentle colour might be nice too??

Could I also ask China and or Jim for a date - I'm hoping her dress and hairstyle are helpful. The reverse is plain brown card, no round edges.

This one has been roughed about a bit. Perhaps a frame with the TLC would help.

This is one from WW1 I think. It's all rather dark and a bit sombre. I hope the TLC can improve it.

A clean and tidy would be much appreciated.

Thanks to everyone for your interest and the different restores - all appreciated.
Sorry China and Jim - a typo - she died in 1873 not 1837  :-[ . Thank you for saying it is probably a copy of an ambrotype. And as usual both of you have dated this copy spot on.

Regarding illness: I have no details of any illnesses she may have had. Gadget's comments could be right.
She died 5 days after giving birth to her third child, a daughter. Emma Jnr. It's a really tragic story. The midwife used water from the river to wash her and also gave her some to drink. She died of cholera and was the first of many cholera victims in the town. There's no mention of what, if anything, happened to the midwife. Baby Emma lived, became a teacher, never married and died aged 93. She lived in East Berlin, DDR.

I posted an enlarged copy of this ages ago and have just unearthed this - the 'original' copy -  which I'm submitting for another evaluation.  I'd like to have her tidied up too please.

As this lady died in 1837 I'd like to know what this copy could be of.  Is it possible to tell? Is it also possible to date her at all?

This gentleman was my husband's 2x gr. uncle..
Is it possible to date him from his hairstyle and the little bit of clothing we can see?
The reverse of the card is blank.
