These are portraits passed down to a cousin. They are supposedly my 2 great grandparents (2g grandfather was 1843 - 1908). They would have lived in the Calabria, Italy area, The 2g grandfather had red hair.
Can anyone tell me anything about the clothing? Is the time period right? I am guessing that these were originally daguerreotypes (or some other type of early photo) that were later painted into portraits, thoughts?
