The Canadian Museum of Civilization has put online a collection of
Canadian mail order catalogues. The catalogues span the years from 1880 to
1975. If you are trying to date an old photograph by the type of hat or dress
worn by the women in the image, or by the date of other artifacts in the
image, then a collection of old catalogues can be a very valuable resource.
Access to the catalogues is free.
you to GenealogyInTime Magazine Newsletter for alerting us to
this interesting photography dating aide.
