As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and "More Dating Old Photographs" would have to be considered an encyclopedia when it comes to dating and identifying old pictures. This is a very useful book for the social historian or the genealogist. By studying the actual 19th and early 20th century photographs in this book - and there are hundreds of pictures from the 1840's through the 1910's - one would have the ability to closely identify not only the era of the photo they may have in question, but, in doing so, may even discover who the mystery person in the photograph might be.
Halvor Moorshead has taken a very unique approach to this genre by pretty much letting the pictures do the talking.
But, there are some minuses to this, however. Even though there is a couple of pages in the front of the book helping to explain some details, I feel there should be more written information for those of us who are novices to period clothing and styles. I think maybe an introduction to each decade/chapter would've been a far greater help than just the photos.
But, don't let this stop you from purchasing this book. The photographs alone make it more than worth the money.
A great historical scrapbook.

As an historian I have found this book invaluable. This and its companion book are the only books like this in America.

I love this book. Not only does it have many, many examples of photos from the 19th century, it has a section on unusual photos and color tinted ones as well. There is a great section in the front about details in photos that give the age away, along with examples. If you have very old photos and want to know when they were taken, this book is a must.

Delivery date very good and good packaging. The book itself was a bit disappointing, as I thought there were too many pictures. I would have liked more written observations about the clothing, hairstyles etc. & of course as the book was writtin about the American hairstyles and clothing types it was for me a bit confusing, as some eras were slightly different. For the American market it is probably great, but my Ancesters all came from England. This is of course just my view and I suppose it is good to compare the two countries.
