Is this my grandfather or my father? Was it taken circa 1905 or 1930?

The photo appears to have been laminated onto a convex ferrous base - a bit like a "tintype" but not; if you see what I mean.

Thanks for looking

R

I would say this looks to be 1930s.

I've seen similar photos taken in 1920s and 1930s, so it's likely to be 1930 (your father)

I didn't see you there, Carol. Hello, I'm in and out today - it's sunny  :)

The photos were mainly of older cousins (I was the youngest grandchild of  the maternal line and Mum was youngest daughter)

Yes I am too...I remember seeing the loops on the shirt that hold the straps in place in family photos.

Thanks all. I originally thought that but the hairstyle is identical to that my grandfather had in the twenties. (There’s a picture of him on page 79 of “Battersby Hats of Stockport - an illustrated history”)

I’d love to but it’s a book not a website!

I’ll scan it when I get chance but the 6 Nations is currently in the way.
