HISTORY of the TINTYPE PHOTOGRAPH: The tintype is a negative image produced on a thin iron plate, viewed as positive due to an undercoating of black Japan varnish. The sensitizing agent was silver nitrate; the developing agent was pyrogallic acid. Each tintype is a ONE-OF-A-KIND image. This photo process was introduced in 1856; early images were placed in cases with velvet lining and glass during the peak years between 1860-1863. The last tintypes to be contained in cases were produced until around 1867, although tintypes were produced in various other forms until about 1930.
