This site will show CDV, Cabinet Photo & Photograph imprints and attempt to date the photos from these marks.
As well, card stock and photo studio backdrops will also be used when available to further clarify dating. For individual photographers from each area,
data will be from newspaper ads, city directories, family research, as well as relying on contributions from photography clubs, research at the LAC in Ottawa,
local museums, galleries, archives and historical societies, etc.
The previous update in Jan 2015 has allowed time to be spent on working on specific dating for individual photogs. This update is dated July 5 2015.
Still about 8,500 sample imprints installed, photog listings were increased from 2,700+ to 3,050+, and Galleries increased to over 560.
The new Tooltip function for directory references has increased functionality and over 1,000 more news clippings have been installed since January.
Next update will be at the end of December.
At some point, advertising will be incorporated. As the software was never designed to handle ads, this may take some time to build properly.
Anyone interested in placing image or script ads, links, etc, should make contact asap as rates will be low, and availability necessarily limited, to keep the site classified as a non-profit entity. Details will be forthcomimg as they are determined.
The site is still a work-in-progress but a number of photog datings have been completed.
Any postings, such as those in Newmarket (amongst others) that have been high-lighted for both the photog & the date ranges, are considered complete,
as far as the "in business" dates are concerned. There may still be data missing from the photogs individual pages.</font>
A new forum has been built for those interested in photog research (museums, archives, photog groups, etc). Contact with details of your involvement.
