A half-plate tintype of a Victorian group sitting on heavy equipment. This is clearly a family group of five, all dressed in black, and sitting on an unusual piece of heavy equipment that sits on a rail line. Their clothes suggest 1890, and they are clearly wealthy. The image is extremely clear, although it has some minor scratches on the surface, and the corners are very slightly bent. It measures 5 by 7 inches.
