This site will show CDVCarte de Visite - Usually an albumen print 2⅛" × 3½" mounted on a card 2½" × 4¼", 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 LACLibrary & Archives Canada, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa in Ottawa,
local museums, galleries, archives and historical societies, etc.
This update is dated August 2017.
About 9,000 sample imprints installed, photog listings are now over 3,200, and Galleries over 640. Over 1,000 Employees have been added (mainly in Toronto)
The new Tooltip function for directory references has increased functionality and hundreds more news clippings have been installed.
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>
