Photogaph dating Elizabeth White born 1864 in Hackney
« on: Friday 10 July 20 19:28 BST (UK) »
I wonder if anyone could help to date the attached photo & how old the lady is.
I think her name was Elizabeth White born 1864 in Hackney, Middlesex & died in 1908 in Rochford Essex. She would have been my wife's maternal grandmother.

It looks like 1880s and she could be in her early-mid 20s.

Thank you Gadget,
That would work out very close to what I hoped. She definitely looks like my wife's mother in her earlier years.

I reached the same conclusion as Gadget before I read her answer.

I am now in a bit of a quandary.
Looking at some photos of my mother in law when she was younger there is a similarity with the photo of Elizabeth White, but looking at photos of her when she is older there is also a similarity with her PATERNAL grandmother.
Could this be possible.

Are you able to put up these photos for us to see?

However, after years of thinking I looked like my paternal side, I find that I really look like some of my mother's cousins!

agray has sent me the images of mother in law that he referred to and I've reduced them to fit.

There are 2 combined one and a third one which I'll put up separately.  I hope he will explain what comparisons he wants  :)

Combined 1
