This book shows readers how to date their old family pictures by recognising the many clues given by the photographic format, presentation of image, photographer, studio setting and the subjects themselves.

Information from Robert Pols' earlier 'dating photos' books has been reviewed and updated for this volume, and he's added a section on online sources to this edition as well.

With numerous photographic examples included, he demonstrates the kind of dating conclusion that can be reached from them.
