Can anyone help with dating this picture please?

This is my 1st cousin 3x removed.

Sarah Jane was born in 1863 and died 1908.

Thank you in advance with any help.

Kind regards,

Pete.

Judging by her birth/death dates, she looks to be in her twenties. If that is right then the photo could possibly be the second half of the 1880s. She looks too young for the photo to be any later. Is there anything else on the photo mounting that could identify the photographer/studio? If there is you might find entries in trade directories of the time to see when the photographer was operating.

It could possibly have been taken for her 21st birthday as she does look young and it is only head and shoulders, so 1884-ish? If she married do you know the year, as it is unlikely that it was taken after her marriage?

Hi there,

Sarah Jane married 28th October, 1882, Radcliffe, Manchester.

All the info I know about this picture is what it says at the bottom:
'J. Brown Photo, Manchester'.
