A mystery photo that needs dating..

Postby Artognou » Mon Jul 08, 2013 11:47 am

Hi all,

I was sent this family photo a while back and between a relative and I, we are having a few issues trying to work out the date of the woman in this photo.

I was wondering if any of you might be able to help me with dating this photo?
I did think it was Victorian, but I can't be too sure.
There was some writing on the back that said A. Ward, so we know which side of the family she's from, but we're trying to pin down the date in order to work out who she might be.

Any help would be seriously appreciated,

Many thanks in advance,
Alex.

The fact that the woman's skirt stops short of her feet and the style of her dress very much Edwardian in style. Very daring after the Victorian, 'cover everything up' age, so more than likely after 1901 and possibly as late as 1920. Hope this helps you.

Many, many thanks Kay, this narrows down my suspicions to two women.

Thanks ever so much, this has been invaluable help! :)
