Identification: tintype family sequence

12201014074?profile=originalThe Guardian newspaper (18 June 2015) ran a story from the National Museums of Scotland which has put a call out to identify the family shown in a series of tintypes.

The photographs of the ‘Margate family’ come from the collection of Bernard Howarth-Loomes, and it is thought they were bought as a set. Lettering on the small boy’s bucket in one of the images determined that the resort was Margate, in Kent. Can you help? See the images here.

They are included in 
Photography: A Victorian Sensation is at the National Museums of Scotland 19 June-22 November

All photographs: Kodak Collection/National Media Museum/Science & Society Picture Library.
