Unknown Two Women

Unknown Two Women

Probably members of the Marnen family. Do you recognize them? Please let me know. Photo from a tintype.



From what I can see of their clothing, I would guess this is from about 1875-77. Check out "Victorian Costume for Ladies" by Linda Setnik, which is the best book in my experience for dating women's clothing in old photos.
