The toning of the first photo is not  1950s. We had masses of family pics taken in the 1950s and none of them are that colour.

Do you think it is safe to settle on the 1930s?

Just one other point:

Is the colour of the first photo an actual tone or is is it aging?

It looks like it is the tone rather than aging ...

So I'll stick with 1930s then  :)
