help with age and dating
« on: Tuesday 08 January 19 20:48 GMT (UK) »
Any ideas what year this photo was taken in and also ideas of the age of the subject please.
I'm thinking 1920's.

Thank you all

I think thatís late 1950s (just been looking through some old family photos to compare.  Certainly fairly wide lapels and baggy trousers mid 50s.  Not quite as exaggerated as these are, but think how they were in the 60s.  Heís probably not as old as he looks to our eyes, Maybe mid to late 20s?

This is 1957

On the other hand...sorry! Iíve just found this one which is definitely 1934. Unfortunately heís sitting down so only lapels are visible

Thank you Mckha489, I think mid to late twenties looks about right. The age of the photo maybe like you say in the 30's. I'm no expert on photography but it seems to be unlike the texture and feel of my 50's photo's. Lets see what unfolds.

I would say looks a lot later than 1920's and he may be younger than he looks but to me he looks in his 30's.
