Tin Types

Here’s a super rad video from PetaPixel about how tin types were/are made. Watch it. It rocks. And I totally want to do this some day…..


Also, here’s a tin type I have in my collection….. It’s labeled on the back…. “Tallest Girl – Mother’s Sister Cora. Next tallest – Anna. Short one – Mother H.”  So, that would make the “short one” my great grandmother or great great grandmother….  I just can’t remember which one had a sister named Cora.
