Question: How to date an old costume detective photograph?

How do you date clothes with old photos?

Look for the photographers imprimatur on the back of the photograph or stamped on the bottom. Consider the hair and clothing of the person or people in the photograph. Womens fashions changed from year to year and what a person wore to be photographed can provide valuable clues for dating the year the image was made.
