The simplicity of design on the back of the card, the subjects' clothing and the studio props suggest that these photographs date from the 1860s.
It also appears that there may be a stand or headrest behind the boy and man (above left) the base visible at floor level, just behind the feet. Earlier photographs required the subject to stand still for a period of seconds and studios utilised a range of headrests or stands to facilitate this.
