Dating only, female, presumed Aberdeen
« on: Friday 22 October 21 19:39 BST (UK) »
Hi, I've had the attached photo for a very long time.  I think she may be from my Grandmother's side, she was born in 1891, although it is not her.  I wondered if anyone could have a go at dating it?  The reverse is a post card.  No restoration required as the original is in good condition.  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.  I have some more photos but will post them individually.  I'm not sure if this is the correct procedure, so apologies if not.  Thank you.

Not a date but just easier to see picture perhaps

Thank you Japeflakes.  My first time posting a photo.  I did think there was too much white space around it!  The others I've posted will all be the same unfortunately  :-[

I've seen a photo that has a similar style dated 1912, so around that date.

Yes, I would agree with that date Gadget.

If you could post a scan of the reverse side of the postcard, it may be helpful, as there are a lot of people here who can date a postcard by the details on the back it.

I'm not sure what you mean.  Carol and I have been helping by dating and restoring photos on here for many years. A look at our stats might give a clue.
