Date Correction

From the style of the women's clothing, this would definitely be from the 1890s, probably circa 1893-1894 judging from the women's sleeve sizes, though it is always harder to tell on older people who tend to be dressed more conservatively. See "Victorian Costume for Ladies" by Linda Setnik. That is one of the best books of clothing in old pictures, in my experience.

Photo Date

Thanks for your input. I appreciate another set of eyes. I had trouble deciding on a date range for this photo, since some key figures looked too young for it to date into the 1890's. But on second thought, its possible. With hair dye, no suntan wrinkles, and people trying not to smile during the portrait (no smile wrinkles); I imagine your date estimate is pretty close.
Thanks again,
Matt
