Possible Date of Photo?

Tue Oct 22, 2019 2:22 pm

Hello,
I am trying to determine the gentleman in this picture.
I was told it was the father of my 3 x great grandfather Thomas and that his name was Abraham.
However since being told this I have proved the father of my 3 x great grandfather Thomas was actually called John, but Thomas did have a brother called Abraham.
So what I am trying to decide is if this is a picture of father John or brother Abraham?

More Info:
Father - John Lusby 1790 - 1859
Brother - Abraham Lusby 1826 - 1904

Any help appreciated. Thanks

Is there a photographer's studio named on the back of the photo? I'd say the photo dates from circa 1850, which would make the subject John Lusby.

Hello,

Thank you for your reply, unfortunately it is about 15 years ago since my grandfather showed me the original/copy that he had, and it has since disappeared elsewhere into the family. I fortunately had scanned it in.
From memory, there was nothing on the back or any kind, and it was small passport size picture so am assuming it was a copy rather than an original.

But 1850's sounds good to me!! As the age of the man would fit at between 60-69.
