Photograph - Photographs
My great-grandmother had this stored away of Cajun hunters who proudly posed for a old tintype metal photograph in the mid to late 1800's with their prized deer, and one of the guns is taped because the handle was broken.
A tintype, also known as a melainotype or ferrotype, is a photograph made by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion. Tintypes enjoyed their widest use during the 1860s and 1870s, but lesser use of the medium persisted into the early 20th century and it has been revived as a novelty in the 21st.
