Date please, CdV by McAllan of Hexham
« on: Friday 25 February 22 14:38 GMT (UK) »
I would appreciate thoughts on the date of this CdV of a rather lovely lady.

I am wondering if it's early 1870's? McAllan had certainly gone over to round cornered mounts by the mid-1870's.

Just bringing this one up for the attention of the experts, Jen. Looks in really good condition for the age of it.

I think it's early 18790s, Jennifer.

A similar hairstyle (ringlets)  here:

I think the vignette type of print became popular in the early 1870s.

Early 70s would be my guess too Jen.

I did mean 1870s  not  18790s  :-[

Blame it on touch typing while watching the latest news  :'(
