Found in Brimfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts. This photo is one of the best examples of hand tinted photography we have seen, very vibrant in color, and unusual in that regard. Hand tinting was done by skilled artists before the advent of color photography. generally it adds a pink blush to cheeks, or colors a bit of their clothing, this is an amazing example of a full color, a stunning and unusual photograph.
Daniel would have been born about 1835-45. This photographer worked in two places. A beautiful and vibrant piece, with this amount of beautiful hand coloring, it is unusual and uncommon.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
