Both are dated 20th September 1860 on the reverse.

Mrs Leigh’s studio label reads L.R.Conconi’s Photographic Studio No.1 Fort Hill, Margate

The only reference I can find is to a Miss L Conconi as a photographer at that time but not to where she was based. It’s not a common name.

There’s also a Louis Conconi of Margate that was a watchmaker
