Date for this photo of George and Elizabeth Robertson
« on: Wednesday 24 November 21 00:47 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I was hoping someone could give a date to this photo.  It is of George and Elizabeth Robertson and could have potentially been taken in New Zealand or the UK.

Thank you

Thank you all so much!!

Would anyone hazard a guess about whether it was likely to be taken in NZ or the UK?
