Help Dating Man and Child in Locket


This is a locket found among my grandmothers possessions, nothing is known about it.
The Hallmark is 9 Carat gold, Birmingham with a date stamp of possibly M (1911). I have been unable to identify makers mark (AJH or AJN).

Does the image look to be from around this time (1911) or could the picture have been taken earlier and inserted at a much later date.

Great grandmother picture


Good evening,

Here is a photograph I found of my great grandmother Elsie May Johnson (1902 - 1965) she was born in South Hinksey in Berkshire and moved to Cowley, Oxfordshire when she was young. I was wondering if anybody could help say when this photograph may have been taken? It was from an album with no information on the back

A date and country for this photo

I wouldn't normally ask, but we are missing records for one whole branch of the family and I am just wondering if this might possibly be a link (found in an old box of photos from one family member). Any ideas on date and country for this? Thanks in hope!

Railway photograph


I found this photograph amongst my great grandmothers photographs, Queenie, her husband Napoleon was a railway clerk at Kings Cross station in London. I imagine this photograph is Victorian, Napoleon Britnell was born in 1881 in Stokenchurch. There is no writing on the back of the photograph. I was wondering if anybody had any ideas when this may have been taken?

Would like opinions on the age of this photo, which I found among my mother's things, it is inside a Christmas greeting cover, also included.
Also, if any of you have access to the British Newspaper Archive would you look at the photo on page 9, Sussex Agricultural Express, 18 Jun 1915 and tell me if you think the gentleman below looks anything like any of the soldiers there! Thanks ...
