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 site is under continual construction, and has now progressed to also working on specific dating.
About 8,500 sample imprints have been installed to date, over 2,100 photographers are now individualized, and there are over 350 Galleries noted.
A large number of news ads are installed, about 250 Employees have so far been added, as well as over 625 census listings.
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 forth comimg as they are determined.
No additions were made to the site during 2014, but research did not cease.
This January 2015 update is the result of that, as well as the clearing of a backlog of accumulated material.
Photog listings have been increased from 2.105 to 2,739 and Galleries from 362 to 485.
Female photogs have been increased by 54 to a total of 96; and a lot of new site data added.
Major structural changes have been made and a new Tooltip function added to handle directory references.
All this being said, the site is still very much a work-in-progress.
