LYME LEWIS. Lyme was 21 when he had the cased half plate tintype made, in Marathon, NY. The caption reads, “Taken the day I was 21 years of age, Jan. 28, 1879 by Mynard at Marathon, NY where I then resided with my mother. I was employed in the tin shop of Randolph Mack + Henry Husted.” It comes with a loose CDV sized image. The half plate image has a new seal, but it needs new glass as well. There is some gunk under the glass.
