    LARGE Old black and white photo. HELP!!

    I found a large BW photo in an attic. It is about 24" x 36". It is of a man and woman. It is old around 1900 by the looks of the clothes. Does anyone have any info on what type it my be? It is on cardboard or paper. All the info I can find on old photos if for little ones 4 or 5 inches, not 24 like mine. Thanks guys

    What does it look like? Is it on thick paper, or thin? Mounted? The more info you could provide (and maybe a picture of it, or a close-up of a part or corner), the more people might chime in with info.

    Yep, we really need more information to determine the type of photograph and the date.

    You are dating it based on the clothing. It could be an enlargement made years later from a small negative or print made around 1900.
