These two tintypes were purchased in a group of photos from the same vendor and I believe them to be of the same young woman. I have examined them at length and although there are some slight differences such as she appears to be wearing dark gloves in the second photo and the dress appears slightly different which could mean that perhaps the photos were taken on a different day. I estimate that these photos were taken sometime between 1872 and 1875 but as always I reserve my right to be wrong! At any rate, she is a lovely young woman, so serious and reflective in her poses. I wish I knew who she was and what she was thinking.
