Which Mrs Bower could this be, either Dumfries or Ayr
« on: Friday 24 July 20 15:06 BST (UK) »
If someone could put an approximate date on this photo it would help me decide whether this Mrs Bower is the Mother or Wife of Andrew Bower.
Photography by A McGregor of Kilmarnock.
Thanks.

I would suggest a date of 1920 give or take a year or two.

Scroll down to McGregor.

Odd - the photo is inscribed M McGregor and Sons   but the listing refers to Adam (snr and jnr) and James  :-\

PS - agree with Carol about the date.

It wasn't that unusual for old family businesses to keep the original name
particularly when it passes down the family.
Agree with the date.

It appears to me that the small c has faded, there is a small dot between the M & G.

I see that now - must have been the large gap that threw me.  :-[

Thank you for the help everyone. I should have asked for Mrs. B's age at the same time. Anyone got an idea ?  :) :)
