Date vignette CdV by Gibson of Hexham please
« on: Wednesday 18 November 20 09:07 GMT (UK) »
As this is head and shoulders only I am struggling to put a date on it  :-\
Might it be mid-late 1860's?

Thanks for you any help you can give  :)

The oval vignette was popular in the 70s Jen and this would most likely be early-mid decade, I have several like this, some of which were dated by Jim.

Thank you Shaun  :) the thread you have linked to was one of the first of my many dating requests for my collection of Gibson CdVs.

I should have added in my original post that I do have full biographical information on this photographer.

You must have a different book to me Gadget, I have book by Jayne Shrimpton on Victorian Fashion and can't find a similar example.

Mine is on Page 32  of Family Photographs. The ovals seem to start in the 1860s as I have a couple that were dated (I think Jim or China) as 1860s.

It's mainly the hairstyle, dropped sleeves and back that convinced me.

Ok....Mine must be a different edition to yours as the images on page 32 in mine are of male fashion, there is a carte on the Vaughan website with the same card stock and address dated 1870s but you  could be right, My other books are packed.

No men on my page 32  ;D

I have found a pic of a similar dress that she dated 1869-70 but not in an oval.
