Hi,

Any help with the dating of these photos would be great! Thank you.

I'm not an expert, but from some costume clues I'd estimate that your group photo dates from the years around 1880, the one of the three gents is about 1890, and the single man is probably early to mid-1870s.

Hope that helps

Elaine.

Hi there, I have seen many photographs from this era (I restore photographs for a living). From experience and looking closely at the clothes in this top image (group photograph), I would say it was taken in the early 1880's. Its a gorgeous photograph. Take a look at photographwit.com if you require any help/restoration on any of your photos.

Hope that helps,
Roo

Hi Roo,

Thanks for your reply - that is very helpful!

Would you say that this dating applies to all 3 photos - or just the one of the man on his own?

Early 1880's would make that particular photos subject [my great granddad] about 22/23 - as he was born in 1860.

I think that the one of the man on his own and the group of 3 look about the same timeframe, maybe a little later as my great grandad seems to have put on a little weight! lol - but would welcome your opinion. As for the big group photo - do you think this the same date?

Many thanks.

Elaine
