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?

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  :)

Late 1860 to early 1870's ?

I'd welcome your advice on the date, please  :)

Please can the experts give me their opinion on this one?

I wondered if it was late 1860's or early 1870's.

Thanks for any advice you can give  :)
