Help date a studio photo, Pentland, Ashington
« on: Sunday 02 June 19 14:08 BST (UK) »
Good afternoon,

I have this photo in my collection of a young boy and I think his younger brother, I believe it to have come from my Mums side of the family, possibly the Halls as that is the only part of our family who have any connections to Ashington.

Is anyone able to date it for me or know anything about the studio?

Thank you

I would say it could be 1930s and the boys look to be around 18 months and 4 years old.

Thanks everyone for the replies and links.

Well that date has thrown me, I was expecting it to be earlier, so then the only real possibilities I can see from my tree is it could be my Grandad (born Feb 1932) and his older Brother (born Sep 1928) (why didn't they name the photos!!!  ;D)

It's a shame as it's a lovely photo.
