Table Talk (1885-1939) at Trove is a must for those who enjoy period fashion. Having some knowledge of fashion trends through the decades is invaluable when it comes to dating family photos. So with that, it’s time for a Trove Tuesday Fashion Quiz. I found the following competition in 1930 editions of Table Talk. Over six weeks, readers could enter the weekly competition and vie for two guineas if their correct entry was drawn.
I have chosen the photos from weeks five and six simply because the copy of the photos were best in those weeks. See if you can guess the years each of the dresses were from. The date range is 1900 to 1930. You will find the weekly solution underneath the photos.
This is the entry form included for week six of the competition.
How did you go? Why not test yourself on the dresses from weeks one to four listed below:
