Following are several more examples of John's work
Many of the scans below show both the front and the back of the image to demonstrate the detail and authenticity John puts into all of his work. The stamps on the backs of the tintypes are original Civil War era tax stamps. Photographs were taxed during the latter part of the war. Also shown in these expamples are the backs of some albumen print card mounts, cover of letter press printed folder mounts, and little envelope sleeves for Ferrotypes. All of this just goes to show that John's work is authentically made to the core, front and back, and with all the correct trimmings.
