Date needed for picture

Postby coliniok » Fri Apr 27, 2012 1:14 pm

I have been given this photo and am looking for a date as to when it was taken.
The photo is the road i used to live on during the 1970,it was posted to me from a friends mother but he doesnt know when it was taken and i havent any idea.
It would be good if anybody had a rough idea of the year,having livedon the road it would be good to know just how old this picture is.

Thanks in advance for anybody who can help with a date

I would put a rough estimate on this photo as 1905 - 1910, as the girls skirts are slightly higher than the late 1890's - early 1900's. By 1910 - 1912 white smocks for younger girls was not as common and older girls dresses began to have dropped waistlines. Boys clothing is a little more difficult to date, but certainly those in the photo would fit in with the dates up to 1910.

Great photo!

I have one of my Grandad (born 1906) which was taken in 1911 - it is a family group and he has both older and younger siblings and the clothing is exactly as in this photo.

May I ask where this was taken please?
