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/

Husband Finding Advice in Vintage Movie: Choosing for Happiness DVD (1950)

Husband Finding Advice in Vintage Movie: Choosing for Happiness DVD (1950)

  • Title: Choosing for Happiness
  • Year: 1950
  • Run Time:12:45
  • Audio/Visual: Sound, Black & White

This interesting 1950’s social guidance film for young women discusses how to find a mate. Instead of talking about how to dress and act on a date, however, Choosing for Happiness concerns itself with the issue of women taking men “as they are” and not trying to change them into the person they might want them to be. Mary, the narrator, is surprised that her vibrant and attractive friend Eve isn’t engaged yet. She investigates the issue, and shows flashback scenes from Eve’s past relationships. In each, a boy with a different personality type is subjected to Eve’s controlling ways, resists, and each relationship eventually fails. With the help of her realistic friend Mary, Eve learns that instead of trying to change her boyfriends, she should focus on the ways she can change herself for the better, and make fewer demands upon her suitors.
