Excellent original tintype, group of seven men in what looks like a traveling wagon studio, several smoking cigars and/or holding glasses of beer and/or whiskey... the man in front is holding the entire keg and one in the back a stonewear jug. Sitting on top of the keg is a stuffed elephant doll... could this be alluding to the "seeing pink elephants" euphemism???

The man directly behind the elephant is holding some object.. could be a bottle, but he's holding it in a strange manner, and it has an odd ring or something near the top.. unsure what it is. Last but not least, the man on the left is standing next to a window holding his violin / fiddle like he's about to shoot somebody with it - the bow is handing vertically so that he could use it as a "trigger".

Dimensions are 3.5" x 2.5". Overall in very good antique condition, with very light surface wear and a few light, soft bends.. pretty minor.
