Photo of unknown female taken by Sutcliffe's Photographers of Burton, Westmorland.
They are both by a photographer from my village (Burton-in-Kendal, Westmorland) so are of interest to our local history society. So far we've not managed to identify who they are, so although they may be local to north Lancashire or Westmorland they could have come from further afield as Sutcliffe became something of a society photographer. Sutcliffe (born 1836, died 1891) carried the Royal Warrant of Photographer to the Prince of Wales (i.e. later King Edward VII) . His wife (b. 1849) carried on the business for some years after his death, so the photos could be anytime up until around 1910. There is nothing on the back of either to indicate who they were.
