Mystery Monday - Can You Help Date This Photo?

**This is one of a handful of photos found in an album among the possessions of Clyde Arthur BRANE (1881-1972), grandson of Daniel and Mariah Anderson BRANE.  The name on the outside of the album reads Mariah Anderson BRANE.


  1. Based on the color-tinting, I'd guess late 1800s - early 1900s. What can you tell us about the photo itself? Is it a card? Tin? Big? Little?

  2. I'm assuming this is a tintype. I would date it to between 1870-1880. It's a very nice photo!
