Thank you, that does make it clearer.

And with that raises more questions.  What does the middle woman have on her lap, under the hankie?  And is the woman on the right wearing two watches?

Blown up it looks like she is wearing two bracelets.

Thanks Seoras,   That would, of course, make more sense.

Agree with George's 2 bracelets but not a studio backdrop.
They didn't look like this because most studios didn't have the space, also several backdrops & associated props would be offered to the sitter & something like this would be too elaborate.
Outdoor shots were very common in the 1890's.
Sorry George.

No problem Jim, I just thought it looked a bit cobbled together.

Thank you Tony.  Your picture gives more depth to the building behind, making it look more solid than just a backdrop.

Seoras and Jim have both convinced me they're right  :-\
If it's not a photo studio, I wonder where it could be.  My nan spent her childhood in the Haggerstone/Hoxton/Hackney area.The building looks too twee to have been there.

She was baptised at Haggerstone Church, but having googled old pictures of the church. it doesn't look as though it was taken there.

Hi, looking at the window frames and what could be a doorway, it does look a bit like a church or chapel.

Now I've taken a more in-depth look at All Saints, Haggerston, and there is a similarity with the window design.

Maybe this was a wooden extension round the back (not in any photos I can see)

I don't think I'm allowed to take someone elses pictures off the internet to put on here, so I won't do that.

Would someone else mind taking a look at photos of the church and telling me what they think.  It could just be a very common window design.
