    Large Half Plate Tintype of Western Scene, ca. 1860-1880. Small town's residents must have been proud of this large, well-formed brick building, which serves as the impressive backdrop in this clear early tintype. The image has men and women of all ages, and is a good example of the Western architecture of this period. The tintype is very large, measuring 5"x 7", and is in superior condition. The edges have discoloration, which is a result of the original developing process and not due to fading or wear. The contrast is very good and the smaller details of the dress can be observed. An unusually large original tintype of a Western town scene.
