How old are Thomas and Jane?
« on: Sunday 29 March 20 18:48 BST (UK) »
These are my great-great grandparents, Thomas and Jane Reed.

Thomas was born in 1843 and Jane in 1847.

Please can anyone offer an opinion as to approximately when this photograph was taken?

I've got a pic of a great aunt wearing clothing like that in 1907-8  :)

Thank you both, I had thought may 1905-ish, so I wasn't too far off.
Somewhere I've got a photo of them taken in 1917/early 1918 I'll post that later for comparison.
