My guess would be mid-late 60s and I think the lad is holding a hat.

I agree he's holding something, Carol, and by the position of his hand, possibly a cap?  Would that be more appropriate for his young age?

I think it is some kind of hat with a badge on - something akin to a naval hat. Maybe he as a cadet of some kind  :-\

I've been looking at this photo on and off since it went up. To me, it is as mid to late 1860s, as Carol says, but the lady's face looks younger than mid-late 40s, which she would be.  However, her hands do look older.

I think it's a very broad-brimmed hat, hanging downwards next to his legs.  I wondered if it was a midshipman's hat too.

Mid 19th century midshipman's hat.

Hi it was nearer 1870  my great grandfather pictured was born in 1856. His mother pictured was born in 1922 so she would have been about 48.
