Re: Landscape picture, unknown date

When I learned cursive in grade school the capital "F" would be considered almost backwards to the printed capital "F". Capital "Q" was the oddest of all as it was like the number 2.

Same here, Colin. FWIW, I came across a site detailing the transcription of th 1891 London Census; they have a number of samples with the initial letter F here:

Cheers,
Chris

I remember one cursive F appearing close to the mirror image of the printed F but there was also a very rounded F shape. I thought I'd never forget those shapes! Because I'm a bit dyslexic it took more brain power for me to get those curves correct but I stopped using cursive about 30 years ago.


For the purpose of this thread, the F in the painting did seem similar to the one on the passport. But again, depending on the instrument the shapes may change dramatically. The "F" below is close to the one I was originally taught.
