Tintype exposure is about 1"W x 2"H.
A girl in a white dress stands next to a seated man in dark clothes with her left arm around his shoulder. The man wears a hat and his hands rest on his lap. A young woman or girl, also in a white dress, sits next to him with her hands folded in her lap.
Date of photograph is unknown but tintypes flourished in popularity in the 1860s and 1870s and the clothing of the figures suggests a similar time period.
