old photo on white marble
« on: Sunday 22 March 15 17:28 GMT (UK) »
I would be very grateful if someone could date this photo.  It was in an old enamel frame and it seems to have been printed on white marble.
Many thanks in advance

Well there's not much to see except the shoulders, so by the style of those it's going to be around 1892-1897. Without the rest of the outfit I can't be more precise but that's actually a fairly narrow time window.

A thousand thanks !  It is my great grandmother, I was hesitating between great and great x 2 !!
I have four or five other photos that need dating too, so I'll post them in another message.

Aha, success :)

When you post the rest, please do a separate thread for each, and show us the whole photo uncropped, outer edges and everything, okay?
