What was that old photo process called?
Re: What was that old photo process called?
Sorry to respond so late. Actually, many were hand sketched, then lightly hand painted. The faces were always better, as that was their expertise. Plus, they did not have much time to do the sketches, so the face received most of the effort. In fact, many times the faces were really sketched, without caring what clothes the people were wearing. The artist drew in his own interpretation of their clothes to look formal.
If it is an actual print, it could still be a number of styles. I would suggest you review the most common image types at the Library of Congress website (here). That may point you to the right style much faster.
