Date of Photo and Child Unknown Please Help
« on: Sunday 29 November 09 22:56 GMT (UK) »
Hello
I have come across quite a few unidentified photographs that belonged to my grandmother. I am particularly interested in this one of a little girl.
It was taken at The London Portrait Company in Aldershot. Why did they not put names and or dates on back of old photographs
Any idea of date from childs clothing or an approximate date
Have searched the Internet without success on the Studio it was taken.
Look forward to your comments

Porcelayne Ladye :) :)

hope this works never sent a photo on here before.

Hi PL...you have to use the "Attach a photograph or image (and other options).. which appears in blue underneath the big message box where you are typing. Click on it.

Hello Chinakay
Someone has very kindly offered to put on rootschat for me. I know she is a very experienced lady on rootschat so hopefully photo will now appear.
After my seven attempts desperately failed.

With Kind Regards :)

Hopefully it will appear this time, yes...but it would still be good to know what error message you were getting, so we can tell you how to fix it. That way, if you ever want to post another photo, you'll know how :)
