Date Please
« on: Wednesday 10 August 11 07:51 BST (UK) »

One for Jim, I think.
I am trying to decide which of two brothers is the young man in this CV. There was quite an age gap, so date of photo would really help. I know  mens' clothes can be hard to date , but this chap looks like a style-conscious type.

 All I can find on the photographer is that he was in business at 59 North St. Brighton before 1862 and still there in 1867 (Kelly')

Not important, but any ideas about the hands? They look really strange, as if he was wearing big padded gloves.

Many thanks,
Carmela

William Clark was at this address from 1862-84.
The cardstock as George says is a mid - late 1860's design.
I bit of a givaway is the posing stand behind him which was used throughout the 60's.
So 1865-70 & he looks in his 30's.
As for the gloves,someone's butler perhaps.

Thanks, Jim and George. You have more or less confirmed my opinion. I don't trust my own judgement, so it is good to have some expert advice.

Cheers,
Carmela
