For those engaged in family research there is nothing more frustrating than an early photograph without any label to help identify the subject or the setting. But there are always visual clues, and the strongest of these come from what our ancestors are wearing. Our ancestors dressed up for the camera and their clothes offer us a wealth of information about the period and the person. Jayne Shrimpton's book covers 100 years of family photographs from 1850 to 1950. Each decade has its own chapter, with an introduction followed by a wide range of photographs to show its fashion styles for men, women and children. The book is profusely pictorial, illustrated with over 230 photographs, and offers a brilliant guide to dating our precious photographic heirlooms.
