Anonymous: half plate outdoor scene, ca. 1870

Image of Anonymous: half plate outdoor scene, ca. 1870

A fascinating outdoor tintype somewhere in the US.
Several men, women and children are standing in front of a large wooden building. I can count 9 people. On the left side, a man is riding a small horse or maybe a donkey. There is a ladder on the roof. In front of the door you can see a baby in a high chair.
A young tree in the foreground gives the photograph a nice composition.

This half plate is a vintage copy photograph of the original tintype. Housed in a half case.

ca. 12 x 15 cm
