    Hello everyone, I was wondering if someone could help me ID the types of photos I have here. In general, I think we are talking early 20th century, like the 190somethings. I have no knowledge in this area and would really appreciate the help.

    The third image, the family portrait, is very large maybe about 12 by 14 inches. And the frame is solid wood with nice designs, not hand carved. Thank you!

      I would consider them to be from about 1895- 1910.

      This is based on handling THOUSANDS of them and seeing numerous examples that are either dated or with SAW motifs that put them within that time frame.

      Your large framed example also has photographers information on the bottom corner that can be researched-- may give you a more precise bracket based on address or photographer's time in business.

      Additionally, you MAY find additional information on the photo backs if you are inclined to take them out of the frames.

      You have been busy to start with & I cannot think of the name of the cameras but I think they were taken with those huge ones where you threw a cover over yourself & the camera if that is of any help. May your day be pleasant & your life sweet.
