Orphan Photo # 59 Vintage Tin Types Family in Hats

Great vintage tin type photo of an unidentified family. Appears to be two brothers and a sister. All are dressed in their best clothes and wearing hats.

The young man on the left appears to be the youngest of the three and probably a little shorter than his brother. His hat stands up higher so he looks to be the same height.

The young lady is dressed in a blouse and skirt or dressed with embrodery trim on skirt at the lower edge.

This is probably from the late 1800's to early 1900's.

Hope that you are enjoying my vintage photos and will stop back again.. Grace

Orphan Photo # 52 Bride and Groom Wedding Photo CDV from Sweden

Orphan Photo # 51 is a beautiful vintage CDV wedding photo. Sadly there is no name listed on it. Photographer is Ida Harckner, Malung.
What a beautiful bride in her veil to the floor.I love vintage wedding photos and to see the change in style of wedding dresses.
The groom appears to be a few years older than the bride.
I would date this to the early 1900's or very late 1890's.

Did a google search and found this little bit of information on Malung, Sweden.

Orphan Photo # 49 Vintage Photo Poses Early 1900's Cute Man in Hat

I love these old photos where there is 4 different poses in a row. This one is of a handsome gentleman dressed in his best suit. His shirt has a wide collar and he is wearing a colorful tie. Second photo he is wearing a hat. What do we know about him? Not much really. Probably in early 20's , probably is a business man or works in an office from the clothing.

Sadly we have no name written on the photo or even know where it is taken. Looking at the chair in the back ground I am guessing this photo is from the early 1900's.
I remember these from the 1950's. You would go into this photo booth. Put in your money and get four different poses.
Some where I have an old photo of my sister and me taken in the 1950's. We are wearing coats and scarfs on our head. Look like 2 poor little urchins.

One of the photos in my banner is of a darling little girl in several poses. I have several photos of her that I bought at an estates. So sad when people part with their family photos.
Hope that you have enjoyed seeing this wonderful vintage photo. Please stop by again . Grace
