It could be the war years up to 1920s. When were they born?

Thanks Treetotal 1894 and 1897. They were married in 1917, then he went overseas with the Army.

It could have been their last photo together before he went away.

They were born and lived all their lives in the Test Valley. If I can find out roughly when it was taken I can work out roughly where.

Sorry Jim1 - no back, not mine.

Certainly they are in their best clothes, not workaday ones. So Sunday, holiday or an event. They were ordinary villagers if that helps. Lovely folk.

Thanks. It is the long skirt that made me think it might be earlier. They did go on for a while. Could well be 1922 then, there was a wedding in the family around that time, could have been that.
