An Old Tintype

This is an old tintype of my great-grandmother, Annie Carroll, holding my grandmother, Margaret Gertrude "Maggie" with her two siblings Charles and Ellen Martha "Nellie" standing beside her. Two other siblings would make their appearance at later dates - Edward and Robert. This was so very dark and hard to see that I thought about not using it. However, when I put it in my Microsoft program I was amazed how well it did come out. Maggie's little face can actually be seen. Annie Carroll was a very pretty woman. This would have been taken in late 1871 or early 1872. Another great old picture from the Pearce side of the family. (Click to enlarge)

  1. Isn't it amazing how through today's technology we can see into the past. Really is sort of a time machine.
