    I have a very old photograph taken in Hungary. I know for a fact that it dates back to before 1890 but I donít know how much earlier. I have done a lot of research by looking at clothing etc. in the picture. None of it is conclusive.

    I have been advised to visit this topic. I am now wondering if there is any expertise available by looking at it in terms of known stages in the history of photography and their approximate dates.

    Looks like it could be tintype or ambrotype... a process that came in in the 1850s and was very popular.
