There are many ways to date an old photograph including identifying the photographer who took the picture and finding out when they were trading. This section lists Victorian and Edwardian photographers in Buckinghamshire including portrait and landscape photographers. The approximate dates for each photographer are given based on entries in directories, newspapers and other sources. The photographers may have been in business before or after the dates given.
This page documents postcard publishers in Buckinghamshire. The list is split into two parts, firstly publishers in Bucks and secondly those outside Bucks (mainly national publishers which have produced local postcards).
