By this time, I had my picture taken by a street tintype photographer, and had been fascinated by the result. (I think I was what you might call a “natural born” photographer, with hypo in my blood.)
That street photographer really started the wheels going in my brain. I sent off to a Chicago mail order house for a tintype outfit, and as soon as it came, began to take street tintypes myself.
