Genealogist and photo identification/preservation expert reveals information you can learn from family photographs about a person's fashion sense and character. Taylor writes for those interested in using "this handy guide to study the tresses and trims in your ancestral portraits and learn when different hairstyles and facial hair were in vogue." Her analysis of sample photographs from each decade illustrates how people can use "clues of clothing and hairstyles ... [to] discover when those pictures were taken, how old the subjects were at the time, and how wealthy they were." Includes "fast facts" and "fun facts" about hair styles through the 19th century.
