4 Tintypes of 2 Women, likely from the Bangor, Maine area


Four more tintypes in the collection of about fifty purchased at a Bangor, Maine show in 1990.  See my  previous post on tintypes of 3 women. . The tintypes feature women, men, couples, and children, with many people showing a family resemblance.  I'm working my way through the tintypes of women first; check the blog archives for similar posts in November of 2010.


This post concerns four tintypes of two different women, taken on the same day, I believe.   Many of the other tintypes which I haven't yet discussed also show a tapestry, a prop, I assume, that was meant to convey gentility.




Below are two views of the other woman.




Even though there is writing on the back of the tintype above, it is that of the photographer, and there are no clues as to who the photographer was or where the studio was located.



Two tintypes in the collection, not those above, have a backing that identifies the studio that produced the tintype, both of them in Bangor, Maine.



If you recognize either of these women from family albums, please leave a comment in the comments box or contact me directly.


Thanks for stopping by!
