Photo Frames 8 x 10 that’s inches to be precise and if you are of a certain age its that simple. Wait though, since 1973 when Great Britain joined the European Union the measurements started changing.
It was around 1977 that retail started using metrification. This is even though the government made an official policy on metrication in 1965. Even today our measurements are still no clearer. Gallons, litres and ounces and grams.
Photo Frames 8 x 10
So if you are teenager today would you ask for a 8 X 10 silver photo frame. Or would you ask for a 20 cm by 25cm photo frame. If you wanted to be exact the 8 x 10 inches is 203.2 millimetres by 254 millimetres.
Of course no one goes by millimetres when ordering picture frames so for simplicity it was rounded down to 20cm X 25cm.
Photo Frames 8 x 10 or 10 X 8 Inches
