Dating vintage photos at Who Do You Think You Are? Live 2011

I teamed up this year with Maureen Taylor, America’s own "Photo Detective", to provide a family photo dating service (Maureen is a knowledgeable costume historian). We also put on a display showing a timeline of photos from the 1850s through to c. 1920 taking selected dated images from our personal collections that we felt best represented fashions and photographic styles.
Photos Through the Ages is something we’re just launching, using Flickr to gather together dated family photographs to act as a definitive reference source. All images are displayed on an interactive timeline over on my What’s that Picture? site.
If you have dated family photos from the past then head on over to the group, join up and add them – www.flickr.com/groups/photos-through-the-ages/
