A real matching test . . . Ruby Crees ?
« on: Saturday 06 February 21 23:27 GMT (UK) »
Can you see any likeness between the young and old in these photos.  We can't, but    :-\ :-\

Very difficult with such an different aged woman and different attitudes.  The one of her standing under the tree I could almost believe was the same woman as the younger one, but . . . .  :-\  Maybe it is wishful thinking.  :)

It's a no from me, the time scale is out.
There's about 30 years difference between the 2 photos
but the age gap is greater.

I would also say no, Wiggy. 

I've not seen the one with the man before.

OK - thanks folks.    I think the first is Edwardian isn't it?  And the second would have been taken in the fifties - so nearer 40 years difference . . . but I take your point Jim.
 
Still the ages are not correct.  Ruby died in 1960 aged 73.  She must be close to that in the picture with her husband I think.

Thanks very much :)

Sorry to muddy the waters, but wouldn't the time frames look about right? Born in 1887, 20/21 in 1907/08 (the first photo) and 70-73 in 1957-60 (the photo under the tree).

Oh how I would love it to be the same woman - but even with the ages being right, is it the same woman??

She was such a lovely 'old lady' when I knew her - I would have loved her to be that beautiful young woman.   ;)    Wishful thinking doesn't make it so!! :-\  :)

thanks Peter.

As to whether itís the same womanÖ The photos are about fifty years apart. I have photos of myself fifty years apart and unless a person knew me back then I donít think they could say for sure I was the same person. However, I canít see anything in the young womanís photo that would preclude her from being the same person in the older age photos.

I can't see any likeness  between them.

Wiggy, as you knew her and probably saw her 'face on', can you see any likeness between the older woman and the younger woman? The side on and glasses, etc. don't really give any clues.

There's a nose but noses change with age.
