Photo Dating Service

Welcome! to our photo dating service. 

We have had information on photo dating at this site for many years now but didn't want to commit to individuals because some images take much more research time than we were ready to commit to since we already do restorations.  Since more years have passed, we're convinced that the vast major of images only need a few hours of research to document arguments of their dates and we feel ready. We feel also that once you go through the process with help that in the future you may attempt to do it yourself again because it's a real learning experience for both of us.

 You may have read much of our photo dating 101 already here on our site or purchased a book and tried to identify when you photo was taken and just feel defeated or overwhelmed, maybe not! Maybe, you just rather skip it all and just hirer us to help. 

What To Expect

To facilitate the process, submit your photo via e-mail. We need to see the photo/photos you want to date in order to know if it is possible to start. We can tell almost immediately with most photos what decade or range of decades but we need to research information, photo samples and articles from a few sources to substantiate our findings specifically to your photos, and this make take a few hours. Some images will be impossible. 

We have 1,000's of photos from our clients with known dates, we prefer to use known dates and images from historical or famous persons from wikipedia. If we don't have what we're looking for, we search the web. We have several books we use to make reference to see a list of our reference links. We the name of the book, author and page number which pertains to the image submitted. We do the same for articles referencing clothing in blogs and websites.

As suggested in Photo Dating 101, a file should be created for each photograph and in it the information we give you with commentary samples of arguements

Price Wars 

(a must read!)

Lets talk about a photo restoration costing only $29.99. The old adage,

"You get what you pay for" still applies.
