Emma,Erasmus Beckett,Alice,William Earl,
I found 2 pages to an album that included this tintype as well as individual CDVs and Tintypes of this family along with relatives and friends.I will include more of those photos into this post in the future as well as a clearer photo of the family above.


Family photographed by a traveling photographer


Here is a family photographed by a traveling photographer or a friend of the family who was skilled in the art.
The Man is holding what appears to be a dead baby but the infant look to be sleeping I doubt that he would have such a great smile if that was the case.The family looks to have been photographed outdoors and most likely on the side of the house where this family lived.
