Please could someone date the photos and restore them.

I believe the little girl to to be my gg-grandmother Louisa Dickens born around 1875 but am not sure.
I don't know who the adult lady is and dating might help me.
I think these might be the Seddon girls whose parents died in 1880. Does the clothing look like it could be from that date?
I'd be grateful for any help.

Thank you so much Jim
That gives me a time-frame to work out who the lady from 1910-1920 is.
It also confirms that, hopefully, I am correct in who I think the other photos might be.

Did you happen to know if the girls in black, with the older lady, could be wearing mourning outfits? I'm guessing it's the children of Ralph Dawson Seddon and his wife, who both died around Dec 1880.
Thank you

I think photo 1 (standing woman), and photo 3 (girl) could be the same person.
Milligan - Jardine Glencross Dinwoodie - Brown: (Dumfriesshire & Kirkcudbrightshire)
Clark Faulds Cuthbertson Bryson Wilson: (Ayrshire & Renfrewshire)
Neale Cater Kinder - Harrison: (Warwickshire & Queensland)
Roberts - Spry: (Cornwall, Middlesex & Queensland)
Munster: (Schleswig-Holstein & Queensland) and Plate: (Braunschweig, Neubruck & Queensland)

Thanks Neale
I don't think so. The little girl is from my maternal line and I've seen pictures of her grown up. I just wasn't sure it was her as a little girl. The other photos have come from a deceased paternal line relative but I'll have to try to work out who the lady could be.
Thanks for you help. :)
