Re: Dating Photographs by Clothing
Thank you, Judith. We do have all the relevant censuses and indeed detailed family trees going back to the early 17th century. Using that knowledge, we are trying to identify the man and the woman based upon more precise dates for the photographs. We have differing views about when the photographs were taken and so want an expert to advise us about the clothing. We know that fashion experts can date (certainly women’s) clothing accurately down to a few years. The fashion expert we contacted is not at present taking on new instructions. Does anyone out there have that detailed nineteenth century fashion knowledge or know someone else who does?
