Help with Identifying Age of Girl

Post by winslowsmom » Fri Jan 19, 2018 5:52 pm

Hello All
This is a photo of my Mum, Jessie McMillan as a girl in Boston. She was born in Ayr, so I am thinking it may have been taken to send to rellies in Scotland. Would like opinions as to the age of the child in the photo.
All input welcome. Not sure how to attach photo, so this will take you to her website where it is posted.

Thank you for your feedback, Cathy Hatfield

What a lovely clear photograph.

Regarding her age, I would say 8 - 10 years?

Thank you Wilma and Annette.
She was 8 or 9 when her mother remarried and had a little extra money for photos, so that makes sense. I would recognize her in the photo anytime, because her hands with the lovely long fingers are the same !
