Another mystery photo for dating

Postby GillMcA » Wed Jul 25, 2012 7:09 am

This photo was amongst my Mother's family papers and (again) I don't know who she is or when, or on what occasion, it was taken.
Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thanks.

Only an observation but it looks as though she is sitting in a disability chair as her left wrist looks supported. The photo looks very early 1900s.

Yes, I reckon it looks Edwardian (the blouse / skirt combination and light, summery-looking fabric). I have a photograph of my grandmother wearing similar clothing, and with her hair tied with an identical bow, which was taken in 1910.

Not sure about the invalid chair though - she could have been sitting down in the photographer's studio.
