Tintype photos, as the name implies, were photos with the image on a metal surface, rather than on glass or paper.
the tintype process was widely used for portraiture, being the cheapest form of portrait available. It was often used by travelling photographers, including seaside photographs.
Some attractive tintypes in cases have been found, but typically, a tintype photo was of poor quality, with a limited range of tones, the lighter tones lacking life.
Mercury chloride was sometimes used to whiten the image. This is about the most deadly poison we know today.
A tintype is likely to be small, perhaps 1.5 x 2.5 ins, or only 1 x 0.5 ins in the case of a gem tintype.
