Sunbeam photo Margate
« on: Thursday 06 June 19 14:43 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to date this photograph of my grandmother Helen White, previously Bunyan, nee Cheyne.
I'm fairly sure it was taken on the beach at Margate. On the back it has Sunbeam Photo Ltd, 82 Sweyn Road, Margate. I understand that the number identifies the photographer and his (possibly her??) pitch but I don't know how to establish the date. My grandmother was born in 1886. I think the frock has a thirties look about it. Can anyone help? If anyone is good at ages I could post another picture of her where I do have the date. Thanks

Hi Groat...I think 1930s looks about right.

I would agree with treetotal looks like 1930's.

Also the specks would date from around then too.

Lovely lady.

The lady looks though she might be about 50 so, as everyone says, 1930's, later in the decade.

Agree, 1930s and late in the decade. The square shoulder line, just suggested at  by the sleeves, were popular into the 1940s.
