Unknown Men

Probably members of the Byerly Family of Westmoreland Co, PA. Photo from an album belonging to Emma Snyder and Charles W. Byerly.

Do you recognize them? Please let me know.

According to "Camera Clues", the kind of rustic props they have are later, from about the 1880s onwards. I'm not that good with men's clothing, but from what I know from "American Victorian Costume in Early Photographs" by Priscilla Harris Dalrymple, the style of their clothing seems to be from the 1870s. So I would guess this is probably from the late 1870s.
