Description: Photographic copy of original tintype of Thomas Jefferson Smith. Original tintype (returned to donor) is 8" x 10", oval matted in a paper matte and framed in an oval wooden frame. Matte is very brittle and was reinforced with masking tape prior to its arrival at the museum. Image of Smith has moderate crackling over entire surface (visible in scanned image). Smith is pictured as an old man with a sunken face, wire rimmed glasses, sparse white hair, and a white beard. He is holding a cane across his chest.
