A Young Adaline

I feel so bad about neglecting this blog for so long, so to make it up to you here are some photos! Click on the images to seem them larger.

Young Adaline

This was such a cool find. Wasn’t she pretty? This is a photo of Adaline probably dating to the 1850’s, so she would be in her late teens or early twenties. It is not a daguerreotype, but is probably a tintype or ambrotype. The latter two types of photography were less expensive and I don’t think that the sitter (the person in the photo) had to sit still for quite so long.

Photo case

The case itself is only three or four inches high. In case you were wondering, no, I don’t own it… although how fun would that be? I do, however, have the contact information of the woman who does. If any family is interested in purchasing it from her, let me know through the comments and I will get you more information. Unfortunately it was more money than I was willing to spend!
