    Wondering if I made a mistake but the last two photographs really peaked my interest. Don't know what I'll do with them?? Did I make a huge mistake?

    Looks like a nice little collection of cartes-de-visites. Their qualities of posing, lighting and process will delight and amaze you. Enjoy.

    You could have a lot of fun, making up stories of extended family members, "Uncle Harry died in Instanbul under mysterious circumstances and was buried in a lead coffin", etc..

    Have fun!

    I won't have to make up stories, we have some pretty good ones but perhaps for the middle eastern photos I might have to embelish!

    They look pretty neat. I think there is some kind of a gene in some photographers to collect old work. Walker Evans was fanatical about collecting post cards. I have a small collection of hand colored lantern slides.
    It's a nice simple way to have a connection to an earlier time in the medium's history.

    studying these early photographs will give you a great understanding of the early lighting techniques and posing methods used by the fine portrait photographers of long ago. Much of the technique is as good today as when your photo collection was originally made.

    A good buy in my opinion!

    they're probably albumen prints. the smaller ones are carte-de-visites, and the larger ones are most likely Cabinet cards....
