Any ideas what date this photo would be please? I have a father and son that looked incredibably alike at this age and I'm unsure which one this is. Thanks in advance.

Could you provide us with the birth year for both father and son, please. This might help to narrow down the options. Thanks.

Hi BeeJayEss, this is a lovely photo there’s not a lot to go on. I’m no expert but my guess is he is the younger boy - the collar suggests late Victorian or Edwardian but his long trousers and smart shoes say later rather than earlier to me.

Thank you Norfolk Nan. I thought it was the younger one too. Incidentally, if it is the younger one, he lived all his adult life in Norfolk!
