Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Date please CdV by McAllan of Hexham
« on: Wednesday 01 July 20 16:57 BST (UK)  »
I'm still trying to catch up with dating some of my recent acquisitions  ::)

I think this one is mid-1860's.

Do the experts agree with me please?

Studying my newly acquired books on dating of CdV's leads me to believe this one might be mid-late 1860's.

Please tell me I'm not too far off  :D

Thank for any help you can give.

I'd be grateful for guidance for a date on this one please.

My track record on dating is very poor to say the least. I am wondering - early 1880's?

(N.B. I do have full biographical details on Thomas McAllan  :D )

I don't actually need to have the photo restored, but do feel free if time is hanging heavy on your hands!

Please can you help me with a date for this CdV by Allan Ramsden please?
I am guessing some time in the 1880's, but only because of the fact that I know he was based in Hexham at that time.
Any assistance will be gratefully received  :)

Dating only required please, no restoration needed  :)

I would love to know where this building is, or was  :-\ I have searched in vain so far.

All I know is that the photo was taken in 1946, my mother in the foreground.

The thatch seems very fancy to me, might this be a regional style perhaps?

There might be a lifebelt at the right-hand end of the building, so is it near the sea or a lake?

Any pointers would be most appreciated.

These are my great-great grandparents, Thomas and Jane Reed.

Thomas was born in 1843 and Jane in 1847.

Please can anyone offer an opinion as to approximately when this photograph was taken?

I would appreciate an opinion, please, on the date of this cabinet card by Allan Ramsden.
He was an itinerant photographer, but was based in Hexham in the 1880's and I wonder if this photograph was taken during this time?
He clearly wasn't happy with the man's eyes as they have obviously been re-touched (he mentions doing this on more than one occasion in his book 'Life in a Caravan').

(Please note, I do have full biographical details on this particular photographer).

Please could the experts give me an approximate date for this?

I'm thinking late 1860's (but I'm usually wrong  :-[ )

Thanks for any help you can give.

I'd appreciate a date for this lovely CdV please. She looks rather 'theatrical' to me, for some reason.

The picture on the back is of Beaumont Street in Hexham which didn't exist before 1866. I only have one other CdV on this cardstock, and this has been dated to the late 1860's.

The young woman appears to be wearing heavy bracelets on both wrists. I wondered if they might be made of something like Whitby jet?

Any help most gratefully received.
