    I thought this was an unusual tintype when I purchased it.

    The 1870- 80s loose tintype shows what appear to be workers or a clean up crew relaxing after a days work.

    The men have a broom, bucket and storage box at their feet. Each man has a pipe (love that long stem in the center).

    They are proudly displaying a Whiskey bottle on the table. I used mirror image software to make the label readable.

    If anyone can identify the Whiskey maker/ bottle it would be appreciated. It appears to read "Michael Cah..). Any assistance is appreciated.

    15. scottvez scottvez, 6 years ago
      I only have the tintype-- can you shed any light on the maker or Whiskey maker?

      Thanks for taking the time to look.
