« on: Monday 25 February 19 19:43 GMT (UK) »
Hello,  I have been given this picture by my nan.  it belonged to her aunt but we aren't sure who the lady is.  could anyone date the photo so I have a starting point please? The back of it looks like a postcard and it says Gales Studios Ltd.

Jackie, welcome to Rootschat. :)
To help the dating experts could you please post the whole of the photo - front and back - showing the edges. The design of the card itself, including the lines on the back, can give important dating clues.
Cheers,
Peter

Here it is with a few minor changes for a possibly better view.  I did this quickly so it needs more for a finished version.  Sorry, but I can't help much with the dating, but there are others who are very good at that.

Hi Jackie and welcome to RootsChat, I agree with Peter, also, if you would like the photo restoring you would need to amend the title of your post by using the modify button.

Here's what she looks like with the lights turned on and after a bit of cosmetic surgery. :)

I believe Gales started around 1907. This is much later & possibly post WW1. Agree need to see all of it.

and this is the back. as you can see it is a bit worse for wear. I think I have narrowed it down to ww1 era from the way the back of the picture is set out (good old google) …
