Just found a yet earlier thread about her, with a restore by Irene and a date from China

Just for fun, in case she is your ancestor.

But you've restored Wiggy's restore  :-\

I thought your restore was lovely as it was, Wiggy  :)
Iím not quite sure what you mean, but I worked on the original photo that was posted by chris01.

Have to disagree with the date. Everything is wrong for the 1870's (except for the oval vignette card).
The hairstyle, neckline & bodice is typical Edwardian.

Agree with jim. Edwardian

John...Refer to reply #3 to see the original. Chris01 has put up Wiggy's lovely restored version for a date rather than the original image.

I apologize if I broke any rules, and I will refrain from any further photo repair/enhancing/colorizing if the poster requests dating. I enjoy doing this type of photo work, but I am not going to spend any time doing it if I upset people. I welcome critical evaluation of my work, that's how I learn, but not accusations of submitting someones finished work as my own. I did a small amount of restoring to the photo that Chris01 submitted in his original post.  I did NOT knowingly post a previously restored photo!

          Don't worry about it John. You keep doing what you're doing mate.

      In fact I nearly used Wiggy's restore as I'd not seen this posting before. Fortunately

   I saw Peter's posting and used the link to go to the original.  I'm so glad that I did (thanx

   Peer) because if I'd used Wiggy's restore, she would never let me forget it. ;D ;D ;D

      We need people like you mate so keep at it. :D :D :D

          P.S. love what you did with the frock mate ;D
