Group Description


Photo Identification -- 1839-1939

This forum is devoted to the discussion of techniques for identifying the date and subjects of old photographs. These include (but are not limited to) identifying the type of photograph process used, information on photographers and studios, techniques for finding other images of the same subject, stylistic dates for clothing and other cultural material. The photo section will have examples of dated images from various periods, and the database section will be devoted to collecting information about dated photos. Everyone with an interest in photohistory is invited to share their knowledge and experience. People wishing to identify old family photos or fleamarket finds are welcome to post messages and images.

Please note that attachements are not allowed on messages to the group -- if you have an image to share, please upload it to the appropriate folder in the 'Photos' section at:
