This tintype is 2-3/8 x 3-7/8 inches in size and was identified as "Don Staples 4 yrs" on a slip of paper attached to the image with a round paperclip. The handwriting is probably that of Lula (Peck) Staples. Don Aura Staples was born in 1878, so this tintype was probably made about 1882. The original, formerly in possession of Lula (Peck) Staples, is now in the possession of the author.
