Nice tidy there, Carol  :)

I'd think mid 1930s and ages approx the same as Carol gave.  When was Leticia born?

Was Letitia born in 1911, MMN Sproule?

I saw that earlier but thought it wasn't the right location  :-\

Added - Tyrone not Fermanagh - maybe they moved.

There are no online indexes for Northern Ireland births after 1921 so if age and date estimates are in the right period then it's likely you won't find her birth indexed online (Family Search has most recent ones up to 1921 while other sites such as GRONI and Irish Genealogy only show those more than 100 years old).

Hi Carol & Gadget,
Thank's for cleaning the photo Carol. Brilliant work as usual.
This photo was sent to my grandfather many decades ago and I have often pondered over it, wondering who the girls were, until last month!
I made contact with a second cousin in Northern Ireland who told me that Leticia Hamilton, her grandmother was the girl in the middle of the picture.  She also told me that her mother was born in 1924. Therefore, I was hoping that the photo was dated in the early 1920's and that the girls looked like they were in their late teens.
My cousin couldn't provide any information on dates but did say that Leticia married James Martin and that her mother's name was Leticia Martin who died in 2015 age 91.
Tragically, the other girls in the picture died in their twenties, both having married.  Their husbands names were, Noble and Robb.
I have searched the Irish records but without success.  all the best, Baz.

The marriages for the girls might be online- GRONI have index of N.I. marriages in their database over 75 years old (c March 1943). I took a quick look 1937-1943 but couldn't see any Hamilton marriages with spouse Noble or Robb.

If it's who you think it is, they would be available online, so very strange that they're not.

Is there anyone else that they could be, Bazza? Do you know who sent it to your  grandfather?
