Are these two photograph's of the same person ?


The top picture is cropped from the group photo that i posted a few day's ago,the picture came with a letter to John from our Mums and Dad's  cousin Jack,
 the picture is of our Nan's Mother ,( Granny Jelly ) his Mother  Ruby , together with her children Including Jack who sent the picture , his sister's ,Ruby and Doris and Nan's youngest sister Margaret ,

when  my cousin John Collins fetched his collection of photographs , there was also another picture amongst them of a lady which looked to me like the same person but older, John wasn't sure who the lady was and thought it might be Aunty Ag , I sent the picture to my cousin Andy and asked him if he could ask his Mum ( Aunty  Betty ) if she could  identify who it was, 

immediately  Aunty Betty identified her as Nannie's sister Margaret Jelley or Mag's as the family called her  , anyway I decided the best way to be able to compare them properly was to crop the head's off the photos and put them together and here they are below ,
what do you all think, if everyone let's me know I will post any reply's anyone send's me together with these pictures : 

Andy has emailed me and he agrees they are both the same person

DIane has just contacted me and she also  thinks that they are both picture's of Aunty Mag's
