  1. Uniform?

    This is a photo (I believe) of my great grandmother who was born in 1901. She looks quite young on the photo so I'd guess it was taken sometime around WWI. It looks to have been taken in a studio but what is she wearing? Is it some sort of uniform? If so, what for/where from? ...

  6. Help Date this portrait of William Richey City Marshal of London

    I believe this photo is of William Mills Richey, who became City Marshal of London in the late 1800s, but it might be his brother. (born 1835, died 1893) Can anyone suggest a date from the clothing and studio set?, I think before 1870, maybe late 1850s or early 1860s but could be totally wrong.
