Two unknown people on small metal plates.

“Tintypes aren’t prints, they’re the actual plates that were in the camera when the picture was taken. It’s known as the wet plate collodian process and was also done with glass (known as ambrotypes). Tintypes (actually on lacquered iron) were popular from the 1850s to the 1880s, but are still made to the present day by some specialist photographers.”
