If you’re smiling on a tintype, you’re halfway to joining my collection. This is a set of late period ones, I’d say 1910s-1920, of very relaxed and smiling friends posing together on a bench. The two on the first are also on the second, accompanied by their two other friends. The gent to the right on the first is smiling so wide on both, he really got into it!
