Interesting comments, thank you all.  Most other photos in the album are portraits but there are a few scenes: seaside, Runcorn railway bridge, among them.

Is it possible to remove the photo without damaging it and scan the back, please.

PS - also, it would be helpful to see the full image, including the edges, please.

My initial impression was that t could be early 1870s but I agree with Gadget, we need to see the back. Are the corners of the image rounded or straight cut Ainslie?

 There is an article here about early Victorian weddings. There is a picture showing a bride and bridesmaids all wearing veils. It wont let me copy it I'm afraid. It does say it was the fashion for brides and bridesmaids to wear white and to all wear veils. http://www.angelpig.net/victorian/weddingattire.html

Card safely extracted and scanned, both sides.  Straight cut - no signs of trimming.

I have cropped outside the margins of the card in each case.  I have pencilled my own code on the reverse- this was not on the original.

That's a great link Pat....If  was 1861 I would have expected to see more beards, having said that...viewed in Photoshop, the women appear to be showing their ears which began to be fashionable from the early 1860s.
Great image.

Added...Just seen your image....the straight cut corners were phased out in the early 1870s to make way for the rounded corners to enable them to fit better into Cdv albums. So late 1860s and possibly into the early 1870s looks to be about right. The back looks too fancy to be early 1860s in my view.

I think the re-scanned group photo did not appear with my last post, but after a few tribulations in reducing it to fit, here it should be.

Just returned. I'd say 1865-early 1870s too. As Carol says, ears started to show with the younger women circa mid-1860s but the back looks nearer early 1870s.
