Please can you help date this photo?

Postby GillMcA » Wed Jul 25, 2012 7:03 am

This photo was amongst my Mother's family papers and I don't know who she is. She seems to be all in black, so maybe in mourning, and I wonder whether she might be my great grandmother whose husband died in 1901 when she was aged 30. Her clothes look a little modern for that time, though. She is holding what looks like a book or pamphlet with a photograph on the opened page.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received. Thanks!

You are almost certainly correct about this being a mourning photograph. However the lady is not wearing a wedding ring so probably isn't your great grandmother, does she not appear in any other photos you have that would help with a date or name? If not then she was possibly a friend rather than a family member.
