    The case is an early thermoplastic case dating from the 1850s. I guess one of your relatives decided to pair them up. It was a good idea. These 20th century arcade shots are usually in terrible condition as a result of being uncased for almost a century!

    Another look tom-- Are you sure it is CO and not a "Cliff House" backdrop?
