Scope and content

Cream card-frame with red vignetting and details. Backing is pink cardboard that folds out, and looks like it is the page of an album. Tintype is a group portrait of seven young women, four sitting and three standing. All the women have white bow in their hair and white lace collars that date this photograph from the 1880s. Studio backdrop used, and you can see where it ends up top. Perhaps this is a class photograph, as they are similarly dressed. Or possibly housemaids?

Notes area

Physical condition

Card mount is creased, stained and yellowing. Tintype creased and bent. Surface is crackling, with some scratches and abrasions. Some bubbling around edges.
