British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Hello everyone,

I need to identify the process used for some photographs in order or date them, however my brain is having an off day and I cannot conclude on what I think they are.

  • The first image of the flute playing man has got a reflective sheen to it.
  • The second one of the children has some white powdery substance on it

(both are behind glass which doesn’t help)

  • The last attached image is from a collection of 6 images. Because of the peeling I’m guessing it’s a collodion positive. 

Any help/advice would be great.

Here’s a better picture of the flute man!

Your "flute man" is a silver gelatin print, probably a developed out one from about 1910-1915 or so. 

Hard to tell on the second print just from an image.  I think the last one is a tintype in poor condition.

Thanks for your help Alex!
