Advanced Search Help
So that you can find an image within any particular date period, options are given in the form of a 'From' and 'To' set of dates. Type your dates into the boxes in figures using the format Day, Month, then Year with slashes between the numbers i.e. 25/12/2000. Any item which has a date which falls between these two dates will be returned on the search results page.
In the example below, a date range of 1st January 1910 to 31st December 1919 has been set.
Many of the images in the collection have not had a date assigned to them (this is because the date is unknown). Where an approximate date is known, this has been entered onto the database in the same way as this part of the search. This means that an image may have a date spanning a ten year period as in the example above.
