Orphan Photos # 5 to 8 Tin Type Pretty Females

This is a group of 4 pretty young women from my collection of Tin Type Photos.
Sadly their was no indication of who any of them are. I probably bought these while I lived in Minnesota.
Tintypes were produced in the USA from 1856 and became popular from the 1860s. They remained popular into the 1900s and as late as the 1920s.
They are poorer quality and harder to see the detail.
Photographers usually worked outside at fairs and carnivals and as the support of the tintype is resilient and does not need drying, instant photographs can be produced only a few minutes after taking the photograph.
You can find my vintage photos and postcards in our eBay store
