Dating a series of (possibly Stott family) photographs [1/5] [Answered]
« on: Thursday 18 March 21 16:01 GMT (UK) »
A family member has lent me a collection of old family photographs. There are some very old ones which we know nothing about. The family in question are the Stotts and come from the north west of England, although the photos might be of ancestors or relatives with other names. I'd like to get your ideas on dates, please. I'll post them one at a time. Here's the first.

I would take the plunge here and suggest two brothers may have married two sisters.

The men look to be wearing the two and a half inch collar which was popular around 1907-1911

That would coincide with the fashion for wider hats, which the women are wearing.

Thanks, all! That's useful as it eliminates my first theory of the subjects' identities.

The photographer appears to be L Hopper or Hoppett (can't decide which). I can't find a reference to this photographer/studio. However, by 1911 the address, 4 Pendle St, Nelson, appears to have been taken over by a photographer called George Ormerod Stott: https://photo-sleuth.blogspot.com/2012/10/george-o-stott-of-nelson-lancashire.html. As far as I know the Stott connection is just a coincidence. But it's consistent with this photo being from 1907-1911.

There are a few mentions online of there being a J(oseph) L Hopper being at that address from the 1890s.

Well found, Peter. It's one of those stylized rs that we were taught to write in the olden days
