    Hello fellow collectors!!

    Here are just a few of the tintype photos from the post civil war era photo album that I just posted. There are several children photos in this one, and these are the highlights of those.

    There are more photos that I'll post when I get more time.

    Thanks for stopping to have a look!!!

      Judy,
      Thanks! They are pretty wonderful. I'd love to post them all, but there is something like 50-100 photos and I could never begin to post them all.

      Your first two images may be Civil War era.

      I am not sure if you noticed, but the first is a "hidden mother" image. If you look closely-- you can see a hand is protruding from the chair back. Mom looks to be crouching behind the chair to calm the child. Also, there may be another hand holding the child's hand near the chair post. I cannot tell for certain (could just be movement from the child), but it really looks to be another hand reaching across the chair top.

      These hidden mother images are an eagerly collected genre of antique images.

      SWEET! Don't you just love them??

      Fantastic album Scot, the quality of the book itself is great, and the photos wonderful.

      Would this family have been wealthy? To have a special tooled leather book made, and all these photos could not have been a normal family thing surely?

      Great info from Scottvez.
      The girl photos make me smile. We talk today about dressing little girls in smaller versions of adult clothes and then I see these little honeys. Hair all styled, dresses pintucked and shoulders bared. The boy has reason to be glum - that outfit lol! It was ok until Mum picked the socks.....

      Scott,
      Wow, I had actually never looked that closely at the first pic, but you're absolutely right. Good eye!! Wonderful information on the photos and I was hoping you'd see these and let me know a bit more about them. Your knowledge of these old type of photos is quite fantastic and I truly thank you all your input on these.
      Thanks friend!!

      Lois,
      Thank you so much! These are some of my favorites of the children photos from this album.
    9. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Karen,
      Thanks so very much! This album and photos came from an estate of a family in upstate New York. Judging by the types of clothing that the folks in the photos are wearing, I'll assume this was a wealthy family indeed. The child in the last pic does in fact look very unhappy:)
      Thanks to Scottvez for always being so helpful with these old photos, as these are definitely not my area of expertise. Scott, Thank you once again!!

      Glad to help out.

      To answer racer's question about the wealth of the family. These albums are very typical of the era. Albums with slots for 40- 50 images were not that expensive and allowed the family to safely store and share photos with visitors.

      Leather coverings/ binding was readily available and wouldn't have commanded a huge premium.

      There are larger albums that I would classify as EXPENSIVE and an indication of wealth-- albums that held four cdvs per page and totaled 200 images. These larger albums are certainly outside of the normal and an indication that the owner had more disposable income than was typical of the times.

      Love the history of these tintype photos and the looks on there faces!!
    15. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Gary,
      Thanks!! I too am in question of that. I would think this was a little girl with short hair, but I could very well be wrong about that. Perhaps someone could enlighten both of us on that.
    16. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      SEAN,
      I too am fascinated by the old tintypes and their history. Thank you so very much for the kind comment, the appreciation and for taking time to stop in. Very much appreciated!!!!
    17. scottvez scottvez, 5 years ago
      I think roy has it on the last image-- looks like a boy. Boys in dresser is common-- I have seen a lot in 19th century images.

      Gary,
      After studying that photo closely, I have come to the conclusion that this is a photo of a little girl. With the dress, the socks and the girly boots, it has to be a girl. Could be wrong about that though:)
    19. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Scott,
      I'm going to go with your conclusion on this. Now that I think of it, all the little girls seemed to keep their hair longer. Pretty cool!
    20. scottvez scottvez, 5 years ago
      Yep, the short hair and side part does it for me. I have seen girls with cropped hair but not as short as this.
