15473RE: [Genealogy Research Club] Need some help with a tin type photo.
- Sep 4, 2012OCCASION:
It looks like a backdrop to me. Common back then to dress the part and pose in front of a backdrop.
From what I've seen the swimsuits look 1880-1900 after (which they showed more skin).
Check out by decades here http://www.chicagotribune.com/travel/virtualvacation/sns-pgc-bathing-suits-pictures,0,1613725.photogallery
I'd say the girls are late teens early 20's, the guy 20-25.
