There are 2 photos here. Looking at my main picture, the photo on the left is a tintype that measures 4 by 5.5 inches. It shows 2 women with similar features so I'm guessing they are probably sisters. The tintype has a small bend in it and the extreme corners are bent also.
Again, looking at my main picture, the photo on the right is the hard card stock type. It measures about 4 by 5.5 inches also. This photo shows 3 women. To me, the 2 women on each side resemble the 2 women in the tintype photo. There is an older woman standing between them and I'm guessing that is probably their mother. The back of this photo does have writing. It says:
Ann America Cowles Goy
Lydia (unknown name) Cowles
Sarah Cowles Samuels Bickel
This photo is a little dirty on the front. I would have tried to clean it, but I've no idea what to use on it without the possibility of causing more damage, so I'll leave that to the next owner.
There are close-ups of each photo below.
I purchased them at my local flea market. Being a genealogist, I always try to get these photos back to their families but so many of them do not have any names, locations, or identifying features. But if they have a name, I try to help them get back home.
Delivery will be via USPS First Class Mail. Because I will be putting "Do Not Bend" stickers on the package, per postal rules it can not go by regular envelope mail. It will have to be mailed as a First Class Package.
Buyer to pay $6.45 postage fees.
SPECIAL NOTE about SHIPPING CHARGES: Twice yearly and again in November for the holiday season (so 3 times each year) the postal service increases shipping charges. This is what they call their “Delivering for America” plan in which they hope to become profitable. It’s a 10 year plan that started in 2021, so we’ve got years to go with multiple price increases each year. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in three years. This year, unfortunately, I have to increase the shipping. I'll try to keep it reasonable and even absorb some of the changes when possible.
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box or envelope. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES: Sorry, I do not ship to locations outside of the United States.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
