Is this my grandmother?

Postby Gilly50 » Mon Jan 20, 2020 10:03 pm

My paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Chadwick, was born in July 1870 in Nottinghamshire. By 1901 she was living in London and in 1903 she gave birth to my father in St Marylebone workhouse. He was illegitimate and was brought up by a family in West Ham. My father never told anyone that he was illegitimate, probably because of the stigma attached. I only found this out when I ordered his birth certificate. When he passed away I found this photograph tucked away at the back of a drawer. I am sure there is a family resemblance so am wondering if it could be my grandmother. Can anyone help with dating this photo please?
