The techniques of speed dating don’t necessarily work when establishing a relationship with a photograph.

In a digital age, images can easily become divorced from their physical context. Identifying and dating them sometimes requires close attention and painstaking research.

In this talk Bruce Ringer, author, local historian and team leader of the South Auckland Research Centre, provides examples from the Auckland Libraries’ Footprints database of how to describe photographs using the tiniest clues offered by their content.

This talk should be of interest to family historians, local historians, librarians, and anyone who’s just interested in historical detective work.

Booking. All welcome.
