Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Vignette style CdV for dating please

Please can I have a date for this rather nice CdV.

Sadly, in common with some others from the same group of CdV's this has been rather clumsily trimmed although I suspect that the top left corner retains the original rounding.

I have several other Gibsons with rounded corners which have been dated to mid-late 1860's, (see links on this thread )
which (with my meagre knowledge) is what I would have expected from the design on the reverse  :-\

Any advice appreciated as always.

I'd be grateful for some idea of the date of this CdV. I only have one other on this particular cardstock and that was dated to early 1870's.

My feeling is that he was a railway man - do you think I'm correct?

Is the curtain behind him artfully draped in order to conceal the base of the head restraint?

Thanks for any help  :)

Could I please have a date on this Cabinet Card? It's by the itinerant north of England photographer Allan Ramsden, of whom more on this thread

Many thanks for any help.

I'd love to have a date for this one please.

It's by Allan Ramsden, an itinerant photographer in the north of England see

Written in biro  >:( on the back it says 'Mr & Mrs Lumley. Butcher.' In pencil along the top it says 'Mrs Reed' I can see various Lumleys who were butchers, so a date might help me pin it down a bit more. Although it says Tow Law, it doesn't follow that they were resident there, since Ramsden plied his trade hither and yon in his caravan.

Any help in dating much appreciated  :D

I'd appreciate a date for this rather nice photo, please. As the back is divided I am assuming it post-dates 1902?

Given the address on the back I am pretty sure that it is of Hannah Jane Dodd who was living at 16 St Andrew's Road Hexham in 1901 and 1911. If I have the right person she was born c.1860.

I think the addressee must have been a Mary Ann Dodd, who was living at Halton East Farm in 1901 and 1911.

If one of the experts could pin down a more precise date I'd be most grateful.

Please could the experts give me a date for this photo? It is by the itinerant north country photographer Allan Ramsden.

I love the little girls in their matching outfits.

It is larger than carte de visite size, the mount is about 4" wide by 6" long.

Many thanks for any help  :)

Please could someone put a date on the photo of this very striking looking woman??

It is on a divided back postcard and taken by Thomas Hunter of Hexham. He was a watchmaker in the 1891 census, a stationer & photographer in 1901 and a stationer in 1911.

Yet another by the itinerant photograph Allen Ramsden  :)

Could I have a date on this nice little group, please.

This is another photo by Allan Ramsden who roamed the north of England and southern Scotland with his 'photographic saloon' (i.e. caravan) for some 40 years during the summer months, from mid-1860 onwards.

Please can someone give me a date on this rather nice 'outdoor' picture?
