Interesting Notes: Lysander Bradford Howard (1830-1922) was the first photographer in Old North Bridgewater.  Records go back as far as 1856 where he was listed as a Daguerrotypist and Ambrotypist.  Like all photographers of the time, Howard likely started doing tintypes sometime in the 1860s as the public demand for them was high.  He was listed in the town as a town photographer until the late 1870s, but continued on his passion likely until his death in 1922.

    Very good overall condition. The tintype shows a couple minor scratches, and has great focus. The original paper frame remains sealed, and shows some speckled staining and minor edge wear. The original advertising card on the back is in exceptional shape.
