Hi everyone!

I have two questions for you.

1) The photo of the three people...when would you say it was taken?
2) Do you think the woman in both photos is the same person? (The solo photo is after many children so might be?)

My grandmother told me the man standing is my GGrandfather (she has been wrong before!) If that is the case, the woman could be either his sister or wife. The solo photo is definitely my GGrandmother. A lot of this would depend on the year the trio pic was taken. Would appreciate your thoughts.

Thank you!
Brenda

You will probably get more luck on the
Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs
part of this board rather than that dealing with  Handwriting etc.

Just throwing my view in I think the solo woman looks as though she belongs to the other picture, the shape around the eyebrows looks similar.

I have tried to move the post and attachments to the Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs board but each time I do it says the attachments I try to upload are already attached. Tells me to rename and upload again. I have done so three times and get the same message. Any way to just move the post, as is, to the other board without reposting and getting this error message?

Try report to moderator and ask them to move it xpress4 then there will be only the one post.  Otherwise you need to rename the photos before reposting.

For my 2 cents worth I think it is the same woman.

I'm not an expert but I would think they are either the same person or very closely related. The mouth, nose and eyebrows look the same.

Same woman, older and a bit plumper in the second photo.

Is there a photographer's name on the back of the photo?  If so you may be able to date it that way by finding the photographer.

Thanks for your feedback. Looks like one mystery solved. Any idea on the approximate date of the first photo?

Me too with it being the same woman.

First photo looks quite early to me say late 1870's but others will have more expert estimates  :)

When was GGrandmother born?
