This is as much as I can do on laptop

Ears and facial proportions are similar. Nose and mouth are different but that could be age. Similar cheek bones.

(I'm adding to this as I compare!)

Thanks for that comparison Gadget.   Very tricky and difficult to tell isn't it!

I did know, her but only saw her a few times - once every Easter Holidays for a few years, so not well enough to remember clearly (- and I was so young!!   :P)   

Added . . . .  it could be couldn't it - given the difference in age of the two photos. 

She had very poor sight and when I knew, her wore blue tinted specs.  I would love to think the younger woman could be the same person!  ;)  But I won't/wouldn't swear to it.  The side by side is useful I think.

(She lived in a dark-ish house and spent her time transcribing books to braille by hand - as one did in those days. 
Her husband had an adaptation on his steering wheel - a knob which he could just hold and turn the wheel around one handed. He had all sorts of innovative 'toys/tools.'
By the time we knew them they seemed very old to us.)

It really is difficult. Her eyes look fine in the young one and it sounds as if she might have had eye problems from an early age.

I think she might have - might have had something to do with her parents being first cousins maybe??

I found a description of her attending a Lacrosse Ball in 1911 in Melbourne, but her dress/gown is described as pale mauve and beaded . . . could be I suppose . . .

(but what about the printing on the surrounding card saying 'Olive and Katharine Elis, Sheringham Norfolk'??  That's a bit odd.)  This attachment is on the front of the photo - nothing on the back - and the photo has been taken from a square frame - which I didn't receive.

It's Edis, Wiggy, not Elis.  I've found Katherine on the electoral roll in Sheringham and a marriage for her in 1907

(The hail stones woke me up!)

In 1904, Emmeline, Olive and Katherine went on a Round Voyage to Brazil on the Cyril,  departing Liverpool on 29 Dec 1904 (1st class). They are recorded as Misses O, E and K Edis

Add -and I think Olive took a trip to Montreal in 1920!
