Dating vintage photos
When determining when a photo was taken, you have to consider more than the obvious.
You can study photographs with known dates of historic events and eventually develop an eye for details, while noting the dates.
Here on our Genealogist Corner you can see a collection of photos from the 1800's.
To identify the date of your specific photograph effectively, you may need to study the history of the items in the photograph.
The history of fashions, methods of photography, customs of different eras, the history of photography, and even the history of wallpaper.
Do not let this sound too intimidating, chances are most photographs have few clues to research .
