Hi,

I also have a picture taken by N L Hastings, Photographer in Brookville, PA. I believe it a CARROLL ancestor. Probably Denis Carroll. How did you determine the approximate date?

Terry,

I have some books that tell you how to date cabinet cards based on the backing, mount color and other details. You can also date pictures based on clothing, hair styles and props used in the picture. You can find articles online too on dating old pictures.

Good luck,

Lori
