In keeping with my current theme project of photographs, here is a bibliography of books and websites I have used:
City Gallery. Website with articles, forums, lists of books and other helpful information on dating old photographs. 1995-2000. October 2004. <http://www.city-gallery.com/>
**Unable to connect to this database service 29 January 2012**
Cycleback, David Rudd. How to Date, Identify & Authenticate Photographs. http://www.cycleback.com/photoguide/ Cycleback also published this in book form in 2007 which can be found at Amazon.com. Although I haven’t seen the printed version, I have found the website to be extremely helpful in identifying old photographs and would tend to ignore any negative reviews.
