Photograph of young woman - date please
« on: Monday 19 September 16 17:31 BST (UK) »
Please could someone date this photo for me?

Assuming it was the sitter who wrote 'yours affectionately' on the back, I do wish she had also had the decency to add her name!

(I do have biographical details of the photographer, Gibson of Hexham)

mid-late 1860's.
A bit of an odd one as this has rounded corners which weren't about at the time, so I thought a later copy but the back doesn't look like it is.
No wedding ring & she looks about 20 so some one born 1845-50 or thereabouts.

Thanks Jim

I posted a photograph with an identical back here and the cardstock was dated as 1870's (reply #12)  :-\

I was about to say that it looks about 1865 ish because of the back and her ears showing but then I looked at the rounded edges - bit odd.

Added - I see Jim noticed the same and he's very very usually correct  :D

My reply from that one.

Early-mid 1860's & probably a later reprint.

Please forgive me, I'm very slow on the uptake today.

mid-late 1860's.
A bit of an odd one as this has rounded corners which weren't about at the time,

This is a mid- to late-1860's photo/reprint put onto a later (i.e. rounded corner) cardstock?

It seems a bit of a coincidence that you have 2 Gibson reprints on identical cardstock neither of them having the usual 1870's design.
It's possible I suppose that he had these made himself & had rounded corners included before they became mainstream in the mid 70's.

Ah, perhaps ahead of the crowd in the north even in the mid 19th century?  ;D

I just realized I have yet another Gibson photo on the same cardstock, so have posted that for dating as well.

It's 'awaiting approval' by a moderator  :-\ so will post a link when it's up and running.
