Old Photographs

Postby Crazy_Moo129 » Sun Mar 08, 2009 7:20 pm

I'm trying to figure out who these people are. I'd like to have a rough date for them so i can figure it out. I think it was taken in Huddersfield.

Many Thanks!

Judging by the dress, I'd say early 1900s. If the photograph is postcard-backed (i.e. has the word "Postcard" printed on the back, that would certainly suggest early 1900s though that form of photograph was quite common until the 1940s.

If the photograph had been taken in the mid-late 19th century, it would more likely have been a smaller Carte de Visite, or larger Cabinet Portrait, both of which had thicker cardboard backings.
