Help with age and dress. Is he wearing a shirt?

The Photographer was in Perth from 1868 - 1878 as far as I can discover. I am trying to work out which relatives they are from their age.

How old do they look, can anyone age them by the clothing, style of photo etc? What year was the photograph taken?

Is the man wearing a striped shirt? If I am correct he was a Gamekeeper, if so, would he dress as grandly as this?

Thank ...

Great grandmother photo


Here is my great grandmother Queenie Kathleen Britnell nee Folley. She was born in Bledlow, Bucks 1902 to Albert John and Agnes Louie Folley. She married my great grandfather Napoleon Britnell in 1932 in Stokenchurch. I was wondering if anybody could help identify when this photograph may have been taken? I would say late 1920s but wondered if anyone has any other ideas. There’s no information on the back. ...

After careful analysis of comparing a photograph of him with this man it was decided they weren’t the same but possibly they were from the same family.

I was wondering if anybody could help identify the uniform and ...

Help with photograph - date and clothing

Hello, I'd be very grateful if anyone could throw any light on a possible date for this photograph, or on what could be gleaned from the lady's style of clothing. My family believes her to be one of our 19th Century ancestors but we haven't been able to find a birth record. If she is then the photograph is likely to have been taken in London.

Date for photo

Can anyone suggest an approximate date for this photo please? The photographer was a Chas W Hassall or W C Hassall of the Osborne Studio, Church Street, Longton, Stoke on Trent. There are very limited newspaper references to the photographer operating in 1921-1922. Is that a likely time frame for the photo? Are the gentleman's buttons showing an image of a face particularly unusual?

Organising My Photo Collection - Part 1

After literally years and years of collecting Family History Photos and really not preserving them, labelling them, or looking after them with the care that they deserved, I have finally decided to re-organise, digitise, scan, catalog, label and store my photo collection.

After years and years of thinking about it and putting it off I have finally made a start, I will be documenting the whole process from choice of materials, storage, media etc and ...

Great Grandmother from Cumnor


Hello I was wondering if anybody could help me date this photograph. On the far left is my great grandmother Annie Mundy nee Johnson, she was born in 1895 in Cumnor which was originally in Berkshire.
