9 tintypes of men, likely Bangor, Maine area
Nine more tintypes in the collection purchased at a Bangor, Maine show in 1990. There are about fifty tintypes in all, many showing a family resemblance, many of women, many of men, some of couples, some of children, some of what appear to be family groups and a few showing two or more men. The tintypes shown in this post do not have backings, but I've included scans of two that do, to show the Bangor, Maine connection.
Check this blog's archives for November 2010 for more tintypes from this collection. Search for titles with the wording "likely Bangor Maine area" included.
Here are 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.
