Does anyone have any idea when this photo might have been taken please?
Late 40's early 50's? From the clothes on the man far left and the men on far right with open neck shirts....just a guess.
No, I’ve changed my mind.........late 30’s...
I would agree, late 1930s
My first guess was 1930's, but then thought 40's.
I have been trying (without much luck) to see when blouses with a tie neck were in vogue - quite a few of the ladies are wearing them.
Late 30's looks good to me.
Early 40's would still be in the vote as not every-one bought 'what was in voogue.' Those years were still smarting from war & it's shortages.
I agree Wendy
My first thought was late 30s early 40s, and I see you all agree with me
My first thought was 30s / early 40s but see everyone has beaten me to it - darn work gets in the way of fun again
I think early 40s
Thanks very much everyone, that was my line of thinking too.
It’s not good when work gets in the way of lifestyle
Its not but after our move from the busy south east we are making sure we get out into the countryside as much as possible, family history is relegated at the moment but come winter those hidden rellies better watch out
We did the right thing leaving the city behind. We have a bull paddock over yonder, sheep down the road and grapes on the hills. It’s just a bit cold with snow coming on Saturday.
Oops off piste, hope we don’t get lost in the snow storm Saturday.......sorry.
To drag us back, belatedly, on piste ... (I tried to answer yesterday but my laptop is struggling to do anything at the moment). I have a family album with a lot of photos taken around the late 30s and the ladies are dressed pretty much as in the photo above.
Thanks very much BH. Now I have to try and find out who they may be. All I know is it's my Dad's side.
Mid to late Thirties. The number of young men would fit in with the post-WW1 baby boom, the chap in the front row looks like a manager, bank or otherwise, from a Poirot story and several of the women are wearing different forms of slouch hats. Some of the men look as though they are wearing club pullovers. Could be a "works outing", which may account for the variety of styles.
Good point, works outing could well be right, thank you. Have you heard of "Where's Wallie?" Well I shall be playing "Where's the Rellie?".
Thanks. I've just thought about ages, so more likely the late-Thirties. Would your Rellie be in the 1939 Register, with a job?
They are Scottish, so unfortunately the Scottish 1939 National Identity Register, as its called, isn't a available to view online. Which is a shame.
Those "pullovers" ("tank top" nowadays) suggest a Cricket Match to me - they're exactly what my Dad used to wear, with an open-neck shirt.
