Railway Photograph

Does anyone know the occasion on which this photograph was taken please? My Grandfather is on the back row in the flat cap, I think it was taken in Doncaster where he was a clerk, so it must be 1920s.Image

Please help identify people or date for this photograph

I am trying to identify the people in this photograph. I believe they are relatives from Darvel or Galston, Ayrshire, Scotland.
Who are these people.JPG

The baby appears to be wearing a Christening robe trimmed with Darvel lace and the elderly woman and children have lace collars.
I think the elderly woman is likely to be 1) my 3 x great grandmother Jane Loudoun 1807-1893,
2) my 3 x gt grandmother ...

Do these signatures match? Edward Knight 1788-1849

Is any member of the forum a handwriting expert? If so I would be delighted if they could give me an opinion as to whether the attached two signatures match. They were written 20 years apart so allowance could be made for slight variation. It is my only hope of tracing the origins of Edward Knight born 1788 (according to his death certificate).

What year was this photo taken

This is a rather faded photo of one of my grandfather's sisters. Unfortunately there is no name on the back.
Just a postcard with 2 sections 1 for correspondence and 1 for the address. There is a plain square for the stamp to be affixed.

Can anyone suggest what year this was taken in order to identify which sister it may be. I'm guessing around 1910-1915 but may be earlier. My grandfather was born 1903. ...

Military Man Photo Identity

Hello everyone.
I'm trying to establish the identity of the soldier on horseback. It came from a box of photos belonging to my late mother and is likely to be either her father, or one of her five brothers, all of whom were in the British Army.
Her father (my grandfather) was born in 1879, so if the photo is from the WW1 period, it's possible that the soldier in the photo is too young! ...

Can any one help with a timeframe for this coal merchant?

Can anyone help with placing the timeframe of this old photo. Basically I was told it was my 2xGreat Grandfather and my Great Grandfather - however a cousin has been told it is my2xGreat Grandfather and my Great Grandfather's nephew, so I'm trying to work out which of us may be right. Useful information to this argument is that my Great Grandfather was born in 1904 while his nephew was born in 1929. My ...

Very old lady; guess a date of birth?

I came across this image years ago in an old photograph album of my late grandfather, so I am pretty sure it must be of one of his (and, therefore, of my) ancestors. This photo is a copy I had made decades ago, and the album has since been lost or destroyed (grrrr), so I can't return to the original to tell you what the actual paper looked like. I am sure there would not ...

Military Identification

I'm trying to identify the the uniform worn in the attached picture/ the time period. I noticed he appears to be holding a cane under his left arm. It's possible he is from Ireland or Scotland but hard for me to tell. Any suggestions?

Thanks. Stephen
