Out of the Darkness - Enhancing Old Tintypes - Special Set

Three Stooges, The Beginning Three Stooges, The Beginning

We wuz hanging around the s'loon and we decided to go over and have our picher took...and the rest is his tree.

This old tintype needed a few minutes work on the faces otherwise I left it as I found it.

The photographer didn't quite get this old tintype centered in the oval mat.

It was okay though as the Elm family was a bit off center too.

"Auntie Bessie, who had already been frightened, twice, by a clock-work mouse, whimpered at the sideboard and had some elderberry wine." --Dylan Thomas

I cleaned this one up a bit too. The woman has an extraordinary face so I removed some of the scratches. And then I couldn't resist leveling the frame.

Is my hair on straight?

A boy, a girl and then another girl. Tintype: A boy, a girl and then another girl.

Somehow, they all look frightened or at least worried. Maybe very subdued. Has the little one got her shoes on the wrong feet? Or is that another boy?

The thing that bothers me about this one is that the clothes appear to be too old for the youngsters.

The one on the right looks like Bronson Pinchot.

The penciled letters at bottom of the oval seem to spell "Jack" but they have been partially erased.


It was just now that Herb discovered that Terrence was not the guy he though he was. He was not a guy at all.

Vince felt something sharp at this back. He held very still. The photograph sitting would go as planned after all.

That night Blame, the dog, would have company.
