Dating Old Photographs by Clothing
Knowing the approximate time period in which a photo was taken can help you identify the people in it. This workshop will teach participants to assign a decade to vintage family photographs using clues from clothing and hairstyles. Attendees are welcome to bring photographs to the class for practice.
These workshops are for adults or teens attending with an adult. Space is limited and registration is required by Thursday, March 7 online at bit.ly/famhistory2019 or by mail at bit.ly/famhistflyer. For more information,
