Five tintypes of Children, likely Bangor, Maine area

Five tintypes in a collection of about 50 tintypes purchased at a Bangor, Maine show in 1990.   I was told that the folks in the tintypes came from the Bangor area, but obviously I can't confirm that.

To see more of the tintypes in this collection, use the search box at right and enter Bangor tintypes.

The tintypes in this post do not have backings, but I've included scans of two that do, to show the Bangor, Maine connection, of those two at least. One studio was that of J. P. Merrill and the other, A. B. Farrar.

If you recognize any of these children from your family albums or research, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
