Victorian Ohio Tintype & Cabinet Card album

I recently acquired a great old Victorian era photo album from Ohio.

20130904 Tintype-101c

Detail from Tintype 101 of young couple dressed in black.

This old album has 54 photos.
5 Tintypes and 49 Cabinet cards of varying sizes.
The date of Aug. 3, 1880 is written in pencil on one of the panels without a photo in it.
Most look to be from around that time period.

Most CabCards are from Ohio or Pennsylvania  studios w/ some various others from Chicago, Illinois, Connecticut and more . I love all the ornate decoration on the back of the photos advertising the photo studios.

And of course the facial hair is priceless!
I purchased this from seller in Kirtland Ohio who stated the album was “purchased at Schupp Orchard farm auction in Kirtland Ohio years ago” Most are straight single portraits. Some couples & families. No names seen yet.
