Question: What year was this photo taken!?
I asked months ago but cant find the question to see the answers


Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
1876 I would guess!. The picture, though aged shows a fading boarder of a seraphical natural!. This would indicate that the type of camera lens was of early natural perventing full encapsulation rendering a close fading boarder!.

also the attire of the two subjects suggests a fashion period of about 1870-80 pre-moderisnist

Heres a link of early camera models that most likely where used to take your picture in question!. Manufacturer from 1870-1913 approx!.


judging on the photo quality and the lady's clothing , i'd saying between 1880 - 1900Www@QuestionHome@Com

By the sleeves of her dress I'd go no earlier than 1890, when leg o' mutton sleeves were introduced, and no later than 1896, when they started to disappear!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

i think its 1900---1910

Impossible to answer with any accuracy but I would guess early to middle 1800's!.Mainly because of the female attire!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

1890-1896, just because of her clothing, the style started to end in the late 1890's!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

My great grandparents took a similar looking picture in the late 1800's!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Probably around the late 1800's!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
