Contains hundreds of pictures which should help with establishing the date within a few years. Features an introductory essay by renowned old-photograph expert Maureen Taylor, and sections on unusual pictures and hand-tinted photos. A number of books have already been published that describe how to date old photographs. They rely almost entirely on descriptions: More Dating Old Photographs are almost all reproductions of old photographs of known date. Contains over 650 pictures covering the period from the 1840s to the 1920s. By comparing your unknown pictures to those in our book, you will be able to compare clothing and hair fashion, the poses adopted by the subject and the background settings. The book provides convincing evidence that our ancestors were at least as fashion conscious as we are today and that those fashions changed just as frequently. T3034HB - $15.95

This is ok as a starting point but the book could be more informative. Many images appear ersatz, i.e., the wearer's clothes are possibly supplied by the photographer before the image is taken. Just think of your grandparents and uncles and aunts who often cling to fashion and hairstyles of their earlier life.
