Photos on ivory?

Hello all,

She married Clement Henderson in 1871. Clement was a Master Mariner and according to family lore, took his wife and young children on long sea voyages around the world.

Can anyone help date this dress

Hi, I've just been sent this photo of a lady who is thought to be taken around 1911ish but I do wonder if the clothing makes it earlier and could be a picture of my great-grandmother, which as the lady looks quite youthful in the photo would put it around the 1880s. Would appreciate some guidance on this :)

Thank you

Date of photo Cambridgeshire 1900s

The attached photograph was found in my grandmother’s photo album (Maud Mary Martin (b. 1894), I am hoping it is a photo of her mother and two of her younger siblings, but that will only work if it was taken between 1900 – 1905.

Is this a military uniform?

This photo is of Adam Frew 1853-1919. Can anyone help with the uniform? Adam was born in Scotland and he emigrated to Pennsylvania USA where he died.
He looks too old to be a soldier! He was a miner when he emigrated.
His belt buckle looks as if it might have a Maltese cross on it.
Any help would be appreciated.
