What year was this photo taken

Postby gdraper » Wed Feb 27, 2019 5:47 pm

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.
The birth dates of the four sisters are Emily Bryant 1897, Ada Louisa Bryant 1900, Edith Mary Bryant 1902 and Lilian Maud Bryant 1908.

I seem to remember a post sometime back about dating photographs with a ‘postcard’ on the reverse. These started about 1907/8 if my memory serves me right. Not knowing when the three sisters were born I cannot help any further.

I think that this is probably an Edwardian era photograph. Cannot give a definite date, sorry.
