Clark — See all books below and on Amazon here: New April 28, Lessons From The Gibson Girl traces the Gibson Girl as she captured the admiration of both men and women with seductive yet thought-provoking humor in the early 20th century. Even though a century has passed since the provocative, yet comedic art touched millions of readers, many of the problems she tackled are still visible on today’s stage. Lessons also provides a interesting look at the fashions of the early 20th century, ones you may find in old family pictures. That is actually how the book became an idea, as I was researching 20th century fashions. More than illustrations are historically accurate of the time period, all published in popular magazines and journals of the time. Learn more and browse sample pages.
Robert Pols A5, 96 pages. Dating photographs is not always an exact science, but a surprising degree of accuracy can often be achieved, and this frequently results from assessing evidence of several different kinds. It is, therefore, worth taking the time to compare all the dating clues that can be gleaned from an old portrait. Pointers can be found in the type of photograph, the identity of the photographer, and the case or mount with which the picture has been provided.
Then there is the image itself, which can provide telling information in the studio background and props. With some types of clues, the possible time span may be broad, but dating conclusions are often reached via an accumulation of approximations.
Contact Dating Tintypes – The earliest tintypes were on heavy metal. They are stamped “Neff’s Melainotype Pat 19 Feb 56” along one edge. Sizes range from one-sixth plate to full plate see appendix El. Many are found in gilt frames or in the leather or plastic thermomolded cases of the earlier ambro-types. After the paper holders are embossed rather than printed. Uncased tintypes have been found with cancelled tax stamps adhered to the backs.
The stamps date these photographs to the period of the wartime retail tax, September 1, , to August. They “created a sensation among the ferrotypists throughout the country, and the pictures made on the chocolate-tinted surface soon became all the rage,” according to Edward M. Estabrooke During this period “rustic” photography also made its debut with its pastoral backgrounds, fake stones, wood fences and rural props. Neither the chocolate tint nor the rustic look are found in pre tintypes.
They Were popularized under the trade name Gem, and the Gem Galleries offered the tiny likenesses at what has proved to be the lowest prices in studio history. Gem Galleries flourished until about , at which time the invention of roll film and family cameras made possible larger images at modest cost. It was no longer necessary to visit a studio that specialized in the tiny likenesses.
Technical details[ edit ] There are two historic tintype processes: In the wet process, a collodion emulsion containing suspended silver halide crystals had to be formed on the plate just before it was exposed in the camera while still wet. Chemical treatment then reduced the crystals to microscopic particles of metallic silver in proportion to the intensity and duration of their exposure to light, resulting in a visible image.

You know what they say about those who protest too much Yet it’s still fascinating, just how much effort has gone into making their relationship this big secret—for going on years now. We recently took a step back, considered all that effort from every angle, connected a few dots and read into all the signs Suffice it to say, they do know each other, have known each other for a long time and have spent plenty of time together.
But while many signs point to Holmes and Foxx being more than friends, there are just as many indicators that they’re not. And doing their best to ensure that the public remains entirely out of the loop are the actors themselves, who have managed to be photographed together exactly twice in three years—the results of said photos remaining inconclusive pending a full forensic investigation. Surprising Star Couples They’ve been characterized as everything from a hot fling to a cozy relationship to secretly engaged, and every step of the way they’ve laughed it off , danced it off or flat-out denied whatever the latest leg of the story may be.
Most recently Holmes’ rep called a report that their wedding plans were on hold due to Holmes’ pregnancy ” categorically untrue. News that he is “not engaged, not getting married and not having another child. Multiple sources have told E! News that they are dating, with one insider saying it’s been going on for years and it’s “not a secret among their friends.

The grand staircase led from the driveway to the Berghof entrance. This staircase was the scene of many famous photos, showing Hitler’s visitors such as Mussolini, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Neville Chamberlain, and other national leaders, diplomats, and military figures.
Printed mount notations such as photographer’s identification and title are fairly reliable, but can still provide false information. Dating by mount type and style provides a rough indicator for identifying images. The caveat is that many photographers, particularly in more remote areas, failed to keep up to photographic fashion and used old mounts until their stocks were exhausted. Also, photographers reprinted historically or commercially important images long after they were originally taken.
Also negatives were often sold or copied and the mount information may not accurately reflect the history of the images. Flanders views of Prescott taken in the Spring of appear on Williscraft mounts in the late s and Continent mounts into the mid s Notations on the mounts can occasionally provide additional information about the image, but should always be verified by other sources before being relied on.
Handwritten notations are the most suspect, often being added long after the image was made by persons with only secondary knowledge. The following information is provided to assist in verifying possible image dates using information based on the type and style of the photographic mount.

Photographers – Great Britain & Ireland Information from the world’s largest collection of British and Irish carte de visite photographs and from 30 years of trade directory and census research.
Concentrating on professional studio portraits, it is designed to aid the amateur family historian in assessing photographic material from a time when the technology was developing at a phenomenal rate: For the newcomer whose interest is genealogy rather than photography per se it can all be rather confusing. The book is a revised version of Dating Old Photographs , which has been split into two, the second volume covering the early part of the twentieth century.
Improvements came thick and fast, and Pols touches on these and social aspects as photography became widespread and the costs fell. He notes that many studio photographers were unadventurous and tended to follow convention, a reluctance to innovate which can assist the historian to date the photographs they produced. Also, while there were numerous processes, those likely to encountered fall into relatively few types. Dating photographs consists of drawing together various strands of evidence.
Some of these relate to the process used, the physical object sizes and mounts for example , as well as the image. Names and addresses of photographers, where provided, can be helpful, especially when used in conjunction with trade directories, as is information on patronage and warrants on the back. Costume is an obvious guide as fashions change, but studio settings, composition and framing can be helpful too.
For all these pointers, it is not an exact science and a best guess based on experience may be necessary when individual details within a photograph offer conflicting interpretations. Pols warns that caution needs to be exercised to ensure that incorrect inferences are not drawn and that often an approximate date, or a range of dates, is the best that can be achieved.
The book includes general advice on preservation, a section of photographs to illustrate the dating points made, a series of charts covering, chronologically:
Genealogy research: Dating vintage photographs by clothing & hairstyles
Advanced Search Abstract This study examines the accuracy of 54 online dating photographs posted by heterosexual daters. We report data on a1 online daters’ self-reported accuracy, b independent judges’ perceptions of accuracy, and c inconsistencies in the profile photograph identified by trained coders. Female photographs were judged as less accurate than male photographs, and were more likely to be older, to be retouched or taken by a professional photographer, and to contain inconsistencies, including changes in hair style and skin quality.
The findings are discussed in terms of the tensions experienced by online daters to a enhance their physical attractiveness and b present a photograph that would not be judged deceptive in subsequent face-to-face meetings. The paper extends the theoretical concept of selective self-presentation to online photographs, and discusses issues of self-deception and social desirability bias.
The thermoluminescence technique is the only physical means of determining the absolute age of pottery presently available. It is an absolute dating method, and does not depend on comparison with similar objects as does obsidian hydration dating, for example. Most mineral materials, including the constituents of pottery, have the property of thermoluminescence TL , where part of the energy from radioactive decay in and around the mineral is stored in the form of trapped electrons and later released as light upon strong heating as the electrons are detrapped and combine with lattice ions.
By comparing this light output with that produced by known doses of radiation, the amount of radiation absorbed by the material may be found. When pottery is fired, it loses all its previously acquired TL, and on cooling the TL begins again to build up. Thus, when one measures dose in pottery, it is the dose accumulated since it was fired, unless there was a subsequent reheating.
‘Dating Game Killer’ Found Guilty
Rodney Alcala, known as “The Dating Game Killer” because he sought to use his appearance on the game show in his defense, was declared guilty of murdering year-old Robin Samsoe and four young women. Alcala previously had been convicted twice in the murder of the girl, but both times the verdict was overturned. Watch the full story Thursday on “Nightline” at He was charged with murdering the four women after new DNA evidence tied him to those crimes.
You’ve almost certainly faced the problem: you’ve got an album or box of old photographs but almost all lack any identification. Family Chronicle’s special publication can’t help you identify the subject but it can help you with dating when the picture was taken – often within a couple of years.
However, some minor mistakes are still what keeps people from meeting the person they so badly deserve. Be honest with yourself about the kind of person you’re looking for. Don’t settle; however, understand that the saying you can’t judge a book by its cover can be very true. If you can’t find anyone interesting in the current profiles, understand that new ones appear daily on popular sites.
Put up several recent photographs of yourself — in both indoor and outdoor light, also a variety of full body shots as well as close ups of your face. Do not put the classic “Myspace angle” photos or any glamour pictures.
Dating Old Photographs
History[ edit ] A photograph of a wedding party probably from the late s to s. Note the black or dark-colored wedding dress, which was common during the early to mid th century. The carte de visite was displaced by the larger cabinet card in the s. In the early s, both types of photographs were essentially the same in process and design.
Photographer Photographic Process When you look at the photo, one way to date its origin is by determining the photographic process that was used to create it. It can be difficult to commit to memory these various photographic processes and when they were used. I find it helpful to use a web site as a reference point. This site includes an easy to understand history of 19th century photographic techniques, along with photographic examples.
Photo Tree has an archive of 1, photos that you can use to compare your photo and help yourself figure out the date a photograph was taken. Costume In articles about dating photographs one of the ways to identify them, which is emphasized time and time again, is by looking at your ancestor’s costume or clothing. While this is one technique that can be implemented, you never want to solely date a picture by the clothing that people are wearing. One reason is that people did not purchase clothing as often as we do now.
