    Late 1800s Photo book- I am thinking of having it restored- can anyone point me in the right direction? Also most photos are on tin- How do I date the photos?

      Album itself is from the 1860s- 70s and is made for carte de visite photographs.

      There are various ways to date the photos-- but as a general rule, loose tintypes post- date the Civil War.

      My best on your two shown (with few details visible): one on the left 1870s- 90s. Man on the right: late 1860s- 70s.

      Post others of interest and I will add bracket years for you.

      Clothing, backdrop and other clues are helpful.

      Loose tins (in album pages) are 1870s- 90s.

      The cased images are mid 1850s- 1870.

      The pair look to be tintypes but could be ambrotypes (on glass plates).

      Also, may want to do a new posting for additional photos. It will keep earlier comments relevant to the posted photos.
