Is this correct:

Baptism of Ellen:
Hockley 2 Aug 1908 - birth  25 Aug 1904, parents - George and Elizabeth Bysouth

Marriage:
Hackney 26 March 1884
George Bysouth (21)  to Elizabeth White (20).

Fathers:George Bysouth, builder and  Thomas White (dec), Accountant

Marriage:
Hackney 2 March 1862
George Bysouth to Elzabeth Wilks

Fathers: Samuel Bysouth, mason and George Wilks, sailor

Marriage:
Hackney, 7 July 1853
Thomas White, wine merchant to Emma Fieldwick

Fathers: James White, farmer and William Fieldwick, builder

George Bysouth and Elizabeth White married 1884 so, if the photo was of Elizabeth White , it could be either an engagement photo or taken soon after their marriage.

I've just found your online tree and I see  that you haven't named the lady on the original photo as Elizabeth White. It is possible that she is.

I did have the photo on the tree as Elizabeth White but removed it temporarily until I am a bit more certain.
Your comment about it being possibly an engagement photo or just after the marriage makes quite a bit of sense because photos were not a regular thing in those days & it also ties in with your original estimate for the time of the photo & her age.
I think I will add it to my tree with a provisio that it is not 100% certain.
Thanks for all your assistance
