Tintypes from Bellefonte.

Bellefonte, Pennsylvania has one of the best antique centres I've ever seen. On a trip to PA in November, we went to the Plaza Centre Antique Gallery two days in a row. We spent several hours there each visit, and it still wasn't enough time to thoroughly look through everything. A collector's dream and worst nightmare all at the same time.

These are great:
