Date for Photograph of Unknown Young Woman
« on: Tuesday 20 May 14 14:43 BST (UK) »
Dear All,

Would anyone please be able to use the clothes/fashions etc to pinpoint a date for this photograph, taken of an unidentified young woman, possibly late c.19th.

Thank you for any help.

Best regards,
WC

Need to see all of it uncropped please, including outer corners.

Many thanks China

Unfortunately this is all I have at the moment - will see if I can obtain an uncropped version. Do you have any observations in the meantime?

Regards
WC

Mmmm...maybe around 1912ish...just before or maybe during the war. Hairstyle came out just before the war, but so did the open v-necked blouse style and she still has the older style high neckline....neither of them had ever been seen before so it can't be before around 1912-1914. But could be later, maybe up to 1920. Just my guess.
