Help with dating a photo

Postby ClareBear » Sun Dec 22, 2013 5:15 pm

Hello. I would appreciate some help with trying to work out a date for this photo.
I think this may be my grt grt grandmother, however there are no helpful clues to this photo, such as the photographers studio, or a name written on the back. An idea of the date may help, as this lady looks older than other photos I have of my grt grt grandmother.
Thanks for looking
Regards
ClareBear

I am not sure this will help, but this photo could have been taken anywhere between 1870-1920. Most elderly men wore the type of clothing this man has on and it certainly looks like his Sunday best. I'm afraid I can't be any more specific, sorry.

If you're still interested:

I can only see a photo of a lady?? I know of a photo taken 1862 of a lady of similar age with almost identical clothing.
