9 tintypes of men, likely Bangor, Maine area

Nine tintypes in a collection of about 50 tintypes purchased at a Bangor, Maine show in 1990. I was told the people shown on the tintypes were from the Bangor area, though I obviously can't confirm that.

To see more of the tintypes in this collection, use the search box at right and enter Bangor tintypes.

The tintypes shown in this post do not have backings, but I've included scans of the backs of two that do, to show the Bangor, Maine connection, of those two at least.

Scans of the only two tintypes in the collection that had a backing showing the photographer; neither of them is on the back of the tintypes in this post. The studios were both located in Bangor, Maine. One is J. P. Merrill; the other is A. B. Farrar.

If you recognize any of these men from your family albums, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
