I love Tin-Types especially when they’re of my family. Here are some of my father’s great-great uncles or cousins. We’re still not clear who they are exactly just that they’re men from my dad’s side. I love how they posed with their left hands holding their jacket (except the jaunty fellow on the top left with his walking stick). I wish we had more photos like these.

    I love old photos also, tin types are even better. I have collected a lot of my family genealogy stuff and the letters and photos are the best!

    I love them too. It’s such a shame what doesn’t get taken care of though.
