Maybe Vera, date and a clean up if possible please
« on: Sunday 11 July 21 09:47 BST (UK) »
I have suspicions as to who this lady 'could' be but am waiting for possible confirmation of that, will update if/when I find out.

EDIT Looks like my suspicions were correct. Have just been told this 'is' Vera Jobling from Jarrow. Her dates were 1924-2011 and she married in 1944 at St Paul, Jarrow.

If anyone can give me a date based on her dress and possibly the hairstyle I'd appreciate it. I 'think' she has either a wedding or engagement ring on?
And though its not too bad, if anyone could do that voodoo you all do so well and give the photo a clean up that would be wonderful.

Thanks
Boo

This reminds me of a photo of the Queen taken about the time of her coronation in 1953, but it could be slightly earlier. Unfortunately her ring finger is hidden Here's a clean from me

Thank you Eggy1948, I am rather challenged when it comes to the technical terms of photo stuff, but whatever you did has improved it :-) 
Thank you for your time and help, really kind of you.

Hmm, okay so you are way more perceptive than I, what I thought may be a band on her ring finger, now that a sensible person has pointed it out I can see its her 'middle' finger :-)

Thanks Pat, as ever your input, time, skills and help are much appreciated.

I have modified both my versions, I didn't realise until after I had posted that they were both very speckled, should be ok now

Thank you, I 'did' wonder but appreciated your time and help regardless :-)
Really appreciate the non-speckled ones :-)
