The attached photo was in a chest of  documents that I have been sorting out. The papers relate to a Cornish family with surnames Stevens and Jennings.

The photo is on photographic paper with no markings.

Please can you help me with a date for the photo so that I can try to identify the names of the couple?

Many thanks.

Thank you for the quick reply Carol.

That date would probably make the couple John Thomas Stevens and his wife Susan Mary who died in the 1930s.  Susan was born 1862 and her husband a little earlier and I think that would fit with the ages of the couple in the photo.
