Need a little help finding out what and where these came from? They belonged to my Nanny, and I want to pass them on to my granddaughter. Thank You.

UPDATE: Thanks to a Museum and a Library's help I was able to find out what these are. ( Albumen Print From Negative onto Tobacco Cards ).

    Can you tell what size they are? Postcard size?, or smaller?

    Thank you for all the information regarding my photos. These are very small, not postcard size. 2"/3" approx. I think they are tobacco cards, as they were in with a approx. 100 or so that my Nanny had. I am Canadian.
