Dutch tintype of the family van de Watering.


"Souvenir van de Kermis. S. de Winter. Frankeeren met een cent als alleen met naam onderteekend wordt en het woord Drukwerk er op vermeld, en met 2 1/2 cent als er iets op de kaart vermeld wordt."

Samuel de Winter (1875-?) was a photographer in Rotterdam before leaving for Gent, Belgium with his caravan in 1919. He also made CDV. This tintype was likely made around 1900-1910. Another similar example also made at a fair was posted from Friesland. The card opens at the top.


Two tintypes of the same women wearing Dutch traditional costumes.


Same paper border as the previous tintype.

"Lowrie's Portraits, 103 Bold Street, Liverpool. Proprietor C. H. du Faur"
James Frederick Lowrie (Liverpool studio: 1881)


"Taken by Lowrie, 184 Fleet street" (UK)
The number 184 has been replaced with 83.
James Frederick Lowrie started at 83 Fleet Street in 1878,
and had a 2nd studio at 184 in 1880-1882. This was possibly
made around 1882, after having closed the 2nd studio but not the first.
