Re: Need help, please, dating a Warsaw and a Liverpool studio photo of my great-grandmother #poland #unitedkingdom #photographs

This is extremely useful, Michelle, and much appreciated. I will post the photographs on the Facebook group, as you suggest. The backstory to my great-grandmother is complicated, so dating the photos will help enormously. A new spanner in the works this morning is the suggestion from one person who replied privately that the photos are of two different women! That had not occurred to me, but it does seem feasible that the Warsaw photo could in fact be my great-great-grandmother (no other photos exist for me to compare with), and then the woman in the Liverpool photo (many years later) her daughter, my great-grandmother (I know for sure the Liverpool photo is her). Responses here, and a few privately, are split as to the age differences and even as to which photo is the younger! An observation is that in the Warsaw photo there is no ring and in the Liverpool photo there is. 

If you, or anyone else reading this, has an opinion on whether these are two photos of one woman or of two women, and what their ages at the time of the photos might be,I would appreciate hearing!

Again, Michelle, my thanks,

Barry Clarke
