This tintype of seven 1890's women is in poor shape, very dark, scratched and discolored. I did what I could to make it easier to view, but after I brightened it up and removed some of the scratches I realized that either the photographer was not very good or the women were moving because there is some blur in the photo.
These ladies are all dressed in their finest clothes and wearing hats. It is very easy to see from the style of their dress, especially the sleeves, that this is probably mid-1890's. Tintypes began to lose favor towards the end of the nineteenth century. They were often produced as souvenirs on boardwalks and at carnivals. I wonder who these ladies were and what was the circumstance for this shot. We'll never know, but from the looks on their faces they weren't afraid to have fun!
