Can anyone help date this dress

Postby yumyum46 » Fri Mar 16, 2018 9:39 am

Hi, I've just been sent this photo of a lady who is thought to be taken around 1911ish but I do wonder if the clothing makes it earlier and could be a picture of my great-grandmother, which as the lady looks quite youthful in the photo would put it around the 1880s. Would appreciate some guidance on this :)

Thank you

Do you have an image of the reverse of the photograph?

I've requested one and asked if they can see a name of a photographer on it - I'll post an update when I hear back.
I've done a bit of research on-line at the V & A and it seems to match clothes and hairstyles of the 1870s which is a bit early but I guess fashions changed slower back then. Would still appreciate a more expert eye to give an opinion :)
Thanks
