Please help to date photo

Is anyone able to date this photo?

I've cropped it down for the online post, but it was taken on a beach in Jersey, near Corbiere

Thank you!

Anna

Hi Ann, The ladies' high-waisted dresses indicate the period towards the end of WW1.Maybe 1917-19. The slimline,shorter skirts started to come in in about 1913, the hat with straight crown and flat brim would be about 1915,and the 'hobble' skirt on the younger woman was in fashion about 1917. Think 'Votes for women' era.Hope this helps.

Thank you for that information. It has helped me to exclude and include possible relatives
