Dating old photos

Postby coliniok » Thu Mar 29, 2012 11:19 am

I have the two following photos
Both are of postcard type and both have written on back Borough Studios market street Dewsbury.
I am trying to get a rough idea when they were taken from looking at them think they were possibly any time from 1910-1950 but i might be wrong.

Any sort of date would be trying to work out if they wer my father school photos which would be around 1923
or my brother which would be around 1958

Hello Colin

Your first photo could well be in the 1920's. My father-in-law was born 1902 and there is a school photo of him wearing a sailor collar suit like some of the boys in your photo and the style could have lasted into the 1920's or be earlier.

The second photo looks very much like 1950's, the boys are much more relaxed and are dressed in the style of that era, a bit like Just William!

Good luck with your search.

Thanks Rita

For taking the time to look at the photos and post a message.

I think then that one photo is possibly my dads school and the other my brothers school
