These are all 1/9 plate, 1860s tintypes showing the Taylor-Mathis shipyard outside of Camden, New Jersey. They are all uncased and are NOT affixed to the cardboard seen in the background.. they will be individually bubble wrapped and carefully packed for shipping. The typewritten note is included. From online: This shipyard, which was at Cooper's Point in Camden, just upstream of the Ben Franklin Bridge, originated in 1855 as Taylor & Mathis, was renamed Morris & Mathis in 1877 and finally became John H. Mathis & Company in 1903. It was originally a builder and repairer of wooden vessels and during WWI it built work boats, barges and the like. After the war, it switched to steel construction and became a significant producer of tankers and tank barges. I know this isn't the best picture that I have provided.. if you are interested in purchasing, please convo me with any questions.... I will be happy to take more detailed shots or scans of each image.
