This Sixth Plate Ambrotype was listed on e-Bay for many months before I purchased it. I must have looked at it thirty times before I pulled the trigger. I imagine them to be a young couple, just engaged or just married. They are both smartly attired. He seems just a little more sure of his bargain than she does which tickles me every time I look at it.
The image came in a half case with a simple oval mat. The mat is engraved with the photographer’s name, “Holmes, N. Y.”
