Help dating old school photo from Northumberland (no. 2)
« on: Sunday 02 June 19 09:10 BST (UK) »
Good Morning,

I have another photo I would like help in dating. It is of a similar size to the photo in my first post https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=813751.0 at 6x4.5 inches, but this one has a cardboard type frame 10x8 inches.

This photo also came from my Grandad and I know his Parents/Grandparents all lived just north of Alnwick and around Wooler from the early 1800s and with family still living in the area today.

There are no clues as to who it may be and the children and teacher are all in fancy dress for some reason, which may or may not help you date it!

it's so frustrating looking at these old, potential family photos and not being able to identify anyone!

Thanks again

The gent on the left appears to have a two and half inch collar which was popular between 1908-19012.
Another good one.

This one's very tricky as, as you say. they're all in fancy dress. Obviously it will be more recent than the newest outfit, so I'm guessing it's likely to be  1910-1920 - ish.

It is tricky with it being in fancy dress, shame there is no photographer's name on it  :-\

I hadn't considered that, thank you, i'll try searching down that avenue.

Do you know the name of the school Gaz? Often headmasters are named in Newspaper reports for some events.

It could be Chillingham School if the photos dated between 1914-1925, and South Charlton school if earlier than that.
