Lynda what a lovely photo. I will ask Pete to have a go later but he said he is not as good as the folks on the forum. Jean.

What a lovely old photo. How have the heads been put on at the top? - I didn't know they could do anything like that all those years ago.

That is so good. Thankyou Kevkonk.. Polly. Don't ask me how they do it? I don't know how a camera works now never mind back then. I said nearly 120 years old, but I had not thought it through., but it must be well over a hundred years. Can anyone identify the era?

Thank you so much for all your help. The images are so much clearer now. I must have another look at the younger ones who I have photos of and maybe I'll be able to identify them.

According to ChinaKay and Jim 1 from a photo dating site,
There's quite an narrow gap when some of these clothes & hairstyles were in fashion which is around 1909-12
