    Default Help dating this photo



    I would like help determining the date of this photograph. I believe it may be my gr-grandparents. My gr-grandfather died in 1895. Could it have been from before that?

    Well, HR Sherborn was certainly taking pictures at that time -

    What does the other side look like? What is the photographer's address?

    There's a website called fadingimages dot uk (change dot to the punctuation mark to make the URL) which gives biographies of photographers from that period. Depending on which address is given, you can date the photo to before and after the 1891 census.

    PS Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum.

    Henry R Sherborn was listed as a photographer in Newmarket in the census returns of 1871, 1881 and 1891. I didn't look any further.
