Piled up portrait

"These were my great-grandparents on my mum’s side. Harriet was born in 1879 and Benjamin in 1880. They married in Liverpool in 1901, so I think the photo would have been taken around that time. Harriet sadly died in 1913. I am trying to research my family tree and am lucky to have a pile of old photographs on my mum’s side, a lot sadly unidentified."
