I have had a heck of a time trying to date this tintype I got from a garage sale. I've attached a scan of the image. If anyone can help me that would be great!
Re: Tintype Dating
Here are some results for dating tintypes from Google, which include other threads on this forum.
It's a bit tricky, because (IIRC) the technology was used for a few decades from the late 1800s into the early 1900s, even after other options became available.
For instance, here is a tintype photo of my great-grandmother (upper right), who was born in 1889. Here she looks like a young teen, which brings us to 1900 or after.
I have another set of two photos (which of course I can't locate at the moment) which were taken in a photo studio against the same painted scenic background. One group was photographed on tintype; the other was a paper print.
