Help dating old school photo from Northumberland (no. 3)
« on: Sunday 02 June 19 09:35 BST (UK) »
Good Morning,

Could anyone please help in dating this old school photo. it looks a bit older than the photos in my other two posts  https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=813751.0 and is a bit smaller at 4x2.5 inches. Again it's on a cardboard type backing with no clues as to who is on it or when taken other than it came from my Grandad.

If it's post 1911 the picture could have been taken around the Wooler area of Northumberland, and prior to this would be around South Charlton/Rock area, near Alnwick.


Thanks again everyone

I would say this was Edwardian.

Agree with Carol - Edwardian or late Victorian.

Thank you both, what age do you estimate the children to be?

I also noticed on this photo and no. 4 in my posts, that some of the children have their hands on or around the shoulders of children in front of them. It reminds me of my old school photos with my Brother and its something I used to do as the older brother. Do you think this is the case here and they are potentially related or just a random act?

Yes you are correct, it indicates a relationship between the two. Between 8+12 years old give or take a year.
