Date of Photo / Age of Subject

Postby eurogordi » Sun Jan 23, 2011 9:02 pm

Would someone be able to give me an approximate date for this photograph and an approximate age for the lady pictured?

Thank you.

The scan is not clear enough to get a proper look, but I would say it dates from around 1905 - 1912. I have photos of known ancestors with similar style hair and blouse collars and mine are dated 1908, 1910 and 1911.

A rough age for this lady I would hazard a guess at somewhere between 25 and 35.

Thanks Tracy. I had estimated the age as 30/35, so we are more or less agreed on that. However, I think the photo could be older than 1905. The original is very faded, but when I compare it to one of my grandmother taken circa. 1895 (attached), it is the jacket/garment over the blouse that makes me think the two photographs could be of a similar age. Identified photos I have from the early 20th century have blouse collars that are not as high and no over jacket. Thanks for the website which I'll check out later. How I wish our ancestors wrote on the back of photos!
