Dating a photo possibly Ellen Pearson maybe
« on: Friday 20 January 17 20:58 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone work out a date by the clothing being worn?                                                                                           I have been sent this by a family member and we want to know if it is our Great Great Grandmother.  If it is the right period, this lady was from Kent, all the men in the family were agricultural labourers.  She seems a bit smartly dressed but maybe they had one best outfit for important functions.

Thank you, I am starting to think Victorian Period after googling images of their clothing.  If it is her she was born in 1847 and died 1933

Huge array of fashions during the Victorian period which lasted 64 years!!    ;)

If 1890s that would make her in her 40s, so that looks about right to me.

I'm thinking 1889 to 1891. I'm sure Jim our expert on dating will be

along soon :)

Added the sleeves don't seem to be full enough to be far into the 1890's...just my opinion ;)
