Forget this request - apologies - tried to get it removed after receiving only one inconsequential response

Not to put a damp squib on it, but it reminds me of a Theatre Photograph of a play.

I did look at the photograph when it was posted but did not post a reponse as I am no expert in dating photographs.

For what it is worth I have always been told that it is much harder to date photographs based on men's fashions rather than women's fashions as men's fashions do not change as frequently as women's. However I do have an 1895 wedding photograph and an 1895 engagement photograph with the men wearing similar clothes to those in the photograph posted. I would therefore put the date as late 1890s/early 1900s

A check of local trade directories to see how long and where the photographers were in business for may help in restricting the date.
