Dating old Photos
2

I would like to put a date on a collection of rather old photographs. Most are between 5x7 and 4x6 in relative size, and are mounted on thick cardboard. Above is a sample. I looked at Navy uniforms and based on that it is from either the 1860s or 1890s. There are a few prints on metal that I guess are ferrotypes from the 1860s. I'll post more images below.

"No. You're forgetting," said the Spirit. "That was not how you began. Light itself was your first love: you love paint only as a means of telling about light."
"Oh, that's ages ago," said the Ghost. "One grows out of that. Of course, you haven't seen my later works. One becomes more and more interested in paint for its own sake."
