What a neat post, Carla! What sources have you found most helpful for finding historical photos like that?
Hi Kiersti, I find Google Books to be a great resource, Wikipedia often has historical images, and historical societies are great! And just a good ole image search for the setting. In this case my search included the year and often I put in "tintype" or "19th century photograph". For colonials I search for paintings and illustrations.
Thanks for visiting Adventures of the Heart. Be sure to check back for my responses to your comments. Be blessed!
