Mary Henderson Cameron's First Photograph Album

Notes on Photograph : 1 - 27
Confidence in Identification ( 100%) &  Reason(s) for identification / doubts

The only doubts I have are about the exact age - he looks closer to 18 than 15. W.F.S.Hale appears to have died in 1867 when John would have been 15. With Mrs Hale carrying on the business, it is reasonable for her to use up the existing stock of card, but would she be still doing so after three years? Perhaps as a woman she was happier to run the business under her late husband's name?
