I agree with the above comment. For basics on dating photos by the style and physical characteristics, see "Camera Clues" by Joe Nickell. From the style of the clothing, this would be from the early 1890s.

Approximate date of photograph.

This type of photograph is several decades older than 1930. It was probably taken between 1880 and 1894. There were four photographers with that name operating in Delphos, Ohio, during this time period: A.L. Roloson and D.A. Roloson in 1880 and later; G.S. Roloson, 1888-1889; Stephen G. Roloson, 1880-97. [Source: Ohio Photographers 1839-1900, by Diane VanSkiver Gagel.]
