Blog Anniversary - New Tintypes

Today is the two year anniversary of my blog. No fanfare because I forgot! When I looked up the anniversary date last night, I was surprised to see that it is today and that it has been two years already.

I bought these tintype photographs on Ebay a couple of days ago, and they were in my mailbox today. I have projects in mind for these little treasures. And since there isn't any information about any of them, I'll just have to make something up.


This website has interesting facts about women's clothes in tintype photographs during the Civil War era.

The women in my tintypes seem to have different hair styles and somewhat different dresses. Any of you have any information to uncover the clues?
