I've tried to take off that nasty colour cast found in the pics of that era but I'm on my laptop, so only have limited filters. I've also enlarged. It could be late 1960s to 1970s. Nancy was b. 1919.

Add - when enlarged, I don't think the hands are particularly arthritic.

Something doesn't add up.

How old do you think Nancy looks in this photo?
Remembering that women kept their clothes for years then..
Born 1919. Married 1967 aged about 48..
Which of the men is Mervyn?
What was Mervyn,s occupation ?
So they had no children? 48 is a bit late to have a child.

* add - misread Lola's post. I thought she meant the 1960s not her age. I think this was 60s clothing for older women - reminds me of what my mother wore then. Could be later!

I would say the same. My Mother dressed like this in the late 1960s early 1970s when she was in her mid - Late 50s

Are you sure?

She could be circa 50.

No. Totally unsure. She could have had a child.

I  had a dress exactly  like that in  winter of 1968.!
Mine was blue woollen  fabric .Hers looks exactly the same shape even to  the pockets.Same length. Same neckline.
Worn with long sleeved blouse  and cardigan over( winter).

Cannot find anything about Mervyn Stuart  T. except that he died in Oxford.  No christening record.

I was referring to her clothing not her fertility  ;D

He's on BMD.

 I was wearing miniskirts and just married. I had been a student in London for the previous 4-5 years though  8)  My sister, who was born in the 1930s, was also wearing such clothes (Mary Quant styles).
