Vintage Collection: Ambrotype, ca 1880?

While I really like the images of the carte de visite and very clear images of the daguerreotype, occasionally the ambrotype (called more commonly the "tintype") can be surprisingly clear. This image of two satorially stunning males from about 1880 shows how modern the ambrotype and its occupants can look. A study of the picture can even show the weave and pattern of the pants and sack coat at left.
