American tintype of a large general store and its staff. The proprietors are shown in front of the store, surrounded by the store's workers, including in the second floor windows.
The image is very sharp with great tonal range.
Note: we are showing a second scan of this tintype which reverses the image for better viewing, however as this is an early tintype the original is laterally reversed, as you see in the main image.
