For enthusiasts of early banjo
Tintype found at Shiloh, 2012
That's fabulous. Gotta wear that head in a bit now.
Great photo! Wonderful clothes too.
-should it be reversed though, as a tintype?
It is reversed. John's left-handed and that's a left-handed Sweeney banjo - just like the original.
A great Image!
Oh, I didn't realize John was left handed! Perfect then! lol!
That explains the ring on the right hand too. :)
I love it, were you wearing some of your home sewn clothes? You both look fanstastic, and just like a true period photo.
I so wish my wife could get into this fun, but she wont . Your a blessed man John
Don't I know it Steve. Yes, with a couple of small exceptions (Hat & shoes), all of our clothing was made by hand. Elaine did the most of the work, and my daughter made my vest.
Wow - That looks totally legit! And the two of you never looked happier ; )
Wonderful period picture - love it!
