4-1/4x5-1/4" tintype, c. 1870's, in an unidentified location. It wouldn't be easy to move this tintype studio, but judging from its location in the woods, it probably was set up on a temporary basis.
The photographer or his assistant stands casually outside, while a man and wife and their children can clearly be seen posing inside the gallery, allowing the photographer to use the sidelight for illumination.
The detail is Excellent, BUT WE HAVE ENHANCED THE CONTRAST AND BRIGHTNESS IN THE SCAN. The lacquer on the surface has a rough texture, affecting viewing the image properly. Overall, quite a rare image. $1500.00
