I need an online source of public domain "before" and "after" weight
loss photographs. These need to be images of people photographed
during the years between 1900 through 1940.
Request for Question Clarification byalienintelligence-ga
This has proven to be a difficult
if not impossible question to fulfill.
I can only find 1 or 2 requirements
at a time.
Yes, I can find public domain weight
loss images before and after.
Yes, I can find public domain images
of people from the 1900's-1940's
I can even find some of these sources
BUT, if you want to find weight loss
comparison shots of people who are
authentically from the past, and
find those images online, and have
them free for commercial use…
I don't think its out there. I'd
be happy to eat a helping of crow
if another researcher can turn
Any source that will be truly
authentically identifiable will
probably have a cost associated
Which brings me to my final idea
for you. Have you tried microfilm
archives of magazines and newspapers?
There is a really good chance that
you could get reprint permissions
for very little cost. Not only that,
you will be able to verify the year
range by issue date. Some of the people
in the articles could even be around
for you to interview.
If you haven't found a source
already, I'd be willing to search
for archived images. But per your
specifications in the question,
they might not be online, and they
probably won't be free. If you
don't mind paying for them, I can
probably come up with something.
I wish I could help you more
with this. I like to find impossible
things, but this was quite at
the edge. Thanks for the 'workout'
I looked at every page on the net with
photos of people on them that could have
even possibly remotely shown weight loss.
At least it felt like it ;0)

One last question… I should have
asked a while back, how many
photo "pairs" did you need? One
pair male and female, two pair,
Wish I had more to offer this time,
please feel free to ask us more
questions in the future.
