Edwardian likely lads
« on: Sunday 15 April 12 18:03 BST (UK) »
I would love to put a date on these two likely lads please. I'm pretty sure the one on the left is in my family, and a date for the photo would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance

Mike

The way these lads are dressed could put it anywhere from around 1910-20 as this style particularly the narrow cut trousers & turnups was popular over this period & can still be seen into the v.early 20's.
The back of the card doesn't say much but looks like a later one.

Superb, thanks a million. I've got more but I didn't want to swamp the board in one go!
