Date of this photo Edmund Barlow 1869-1927 at Stourhead, Wilts?
« on: Tuesday 23 January 18 12:31 GMT (UK) »
I'm not sure if I have got the hang of resizing images, etc but here goes.

Could someone suggest a date for this photograph?

The chap seated at the right hand end of the front row is my great-grandfather 1869-1927. He was a gardener from Newbury, Berks.

This would be a long shot, but could it be Stourhead House?

I think it would be 1917-1920, going by the women's hats  and some of the men's collars/ties.

Thank you Gadget.

Can I ask what is it about the hats and collars/ties that pins it down to such a narrow period?

Just that that was what they wore during that period - according to my books.  The problem is that it looks like a staff photo and many of the men were in work clothes, which have a wide date range, so we have to pick up clues from the little snippets, like hats, etc.

Many thanks.

This ties in with a 1917 postcard from Stourhead suggesting my grandfather was going to work there with Edmund.

I suppose I should now post on the Wiltshire board?

What extra do you want to know - is it whether it is Stourhead House?

This modern pic of Stourhead has a door feature very like yours - note the section above the door in both:

Gadget,

It does look similar, but don't you think the distance from the ground to the top of the open french window [?] is much shorter in my photo?
