We live in an era of disposable snapshots, which we take but seldom look at again. River City Tintype makes one-of-a-kind, heirloom photographs with metal and silver, using a method developed in the 19th century. Join us for a memorable experience and a photograph that will last a lifetime!

River City Tintype's studio is open by appointment only.
