If these photographs are of a couple,in England, then it's likely to be the 1890's. The lady has a very elaborate frill, and full sleeves on her dress, suggesting earlier than 1900's when blouses/dresses were becoming less decorative. The man has quite a modern collar as it is turned down with a knotted tie, but sports a beard. These were becoming less common in 1900's but still seen in the 1890's. American fashion would have been somewhat different at this time.
The certainly appear to be an 'Edwardian' couple.

I have a photo of my gt grandfather wearing a similar style of jacket etc. He died in 1906 - if that is any help - but his photo was taken possibly about the turn of the century based on other photos I have. You have the name of the photographer on the surrounds. Have you looked for directories of the town/area to see when he was in business? That might narrow things down.

I googled the Todmorden photographer's name and address, and came across mention of him in 1897, 1899, and 1909.
