Yesterday my wife and I went to the monthly flea market at the fairgrounds in Belleville, Illinois. A dealer there was offering carte de visites and some tintypes for $1 each. Something told me to buy a few items, so I did. I'm guessing that one of you is related to the persons whose images I'll be displaying over the next week or so, so let me know if you recognize anybody. Thanks!
NOTE: I'm afraid I can offer little identifying info about this dapper gentleman. I don't know his name, where he lived, or even where this tintype was created. If you have any info on Mister X, let me know care of this blog!
