Could I please request a date for these two pictures? The one on the left is Daniel George Jenman (1820-?). The one on the right is Mary Jane Elizabeth Lowther (1829-1897) The photos were presumably taken in London. Could I also please request a colourisation and restoration?

Hi Francis and welcome to Rootschat, I would say these were taken in the 1870s, most likely mid-late decade.

Added...Could you possibly scan them individually at 300-400dpi as they pixelate badly on enlargement and is very hard on the eyes. The results will be much clearer.

This is what we see!

Sorry, we were sent the scans from a cousin that I contacted on Ancestry. We don't actually have the originals yet (I might try and print out the photo), so I unfortunately can't scan it at a higher resolution  :'(

I'd agree with Carol re dates - maybe the lady was late 1870s-early 1880s.

And toned.  I have to use my other machine for colouring and it's pretty cold up there. Maybe I can get it done tomorrow   :-\

I've tried with Daniel but not happy as yet. I've added a little texture to this one.

I suppose we'll have even more time to do things now.
