Dating and Understanding Family Photographs

This podcast explains how to date old family photographs using various techniques, including recognising photographic formats, dating mount styles, researching studios and dating fashion clues. It also covers the kinds of special occasions that prompted our ancestors to visit the photographer, such as marriage, christening and mourning, and offer tips on sharing and caring for family photographs.
