Description
The tintype, patented in 1856, was a cheap, easily made, practically indestructible type of photograph that became enormously popular among the working class in the late 19th century. For laborers and their families, the opportunity to finally join the ranks of those who possessed pictures of family and friends was momentous. It also gave rise to a specific kind of tintype: occupational portraits of working people with the tools of their trade. In more than 80 examples presented here—plumbers proudly holding their wrenches and pipe cutters, carpenters with their saws and lathing hatchets, textile workers with their spindles and yarn—this book considers what they reveal about late 19th-century values.
