Jayne Shrimpton holds an MA in the history of Dress from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, and is a former Curatorial Assistant at the National Portrait Gallery. She works as a freelance historical writer and researcher, and is the author of 'Family Pictures and How to Date Them', and 'How to Get the Most From Family Pictures'.
"Jayne Shrimpton has managed to include a lot of useful information, and many illustrations from a wide variety of sources. This book will be a useful addition to the social history curator's book shelf, as well as of immense interest and use to those whose concerns lie with non-fashionable clothing or those needing to indentify and date historical photographs." --Costume
