Description
 
Photography was and is a staggering invention. It brought our ancestors face to face with themselves, and it brings us face to face with them. Not surprisingly, therefore, photographs form an important and treasured part of many a family archive. Whether they come in a full set of albums of survive as a battered handful of pictures, they provide a window through which we can gain a glimpse of our own past.

The intention of this book is to help with the understanding and identification of Victorian (nineteenth century) photographs. The original book, 'Dating Old Photographs' which is now out of print, dealt with the period up to the First World War, but so much more needs to be said about the twentieth century than was originally attempted. The resulting major revision and expansion has led to the work being published in two volumes, this, the first covering the nineteenth century.

This volume covers both the Georgian and Victorian eras - the Edwardian era will appear in the second volume, which will cover the twentieth century.
