I found boxes of these photos in the attic and here are a few of my favorite. The second photo is from 1898. I'm not sure about the color photo.

    Your color photo is from the same time period-- 1880s- 1890s.

    It was more expensive when originally made. The color is actually hand tinting to the image. Most quality studios employed folks to tint images.
