You've almost certainly faced the problem: you've got an album or box of old photographs but almost all of them lack any identification. These special publications (in PPF format) can't help you identify the subject but can probably help you narrow down the date when the picture was taken — often within a couple of years.
A number of books have already been published that describe how to date old photographs. They rely almost entirely on descriptions: Family Chronicle's Dating Old Photographs and More Dating Old Photographs are almost all reproductions of old photographs of known date. Each contains over 650 pictures covering the period from the 1840s to the 1920s. By comparing your unknown pictures to those in our book, you will be able to compare clothing and hair fashion, the poses adopted by the subject and the background settings. The books provide convincing evidence that our ancestors were at least as fashion conscious as we are today and that those fashions changed just as frequently.
