Dating Photos by Fashion
The Lake Placid-North Elba Historical Society is pleased to announce the first program of its 2015 “Odds and Ends” Winter Lecture Series on Wednesday, January 28 at Howard Johnson’s Restaurant in Lake Placid. The lecture will begin at 7:00 pm with attendees encouraged to come for dinner at 6:00 p.m. This program in the four-part series is “Dating Photos by Fashion” presented by Margaret Bartley, Trustee of the Essex County Historical Society. Dating Photos by Fashion is a slide/lecture program designed to teach anyone who is interested in learning how to date old photos by the style of dress and fashion. It will cover the period 1840 to 1920 and uses old photos to show how styles changed over a period of 80 years. Dating old photos is a great help to anyone interested in History, Genealogy or simply has old family photos that are unidentified or undated.
