Tintype showing two couples seated in a horsedrawn surrey on a dirt-packed city street, wooden sidewalk in the background, a mountain of trees, a wooden fence with advertising and a house with a Mansard roof

(Northern California?) (1890s?) Oblong 3.5 x 5", no photographer's name attached. Scratches, lower corners clipped, thumbprint and wear on the edges else good. A bit light towards the center and darker near the edges. The posted advertising on the fence is in reverse (obviously) and only partially legible. One is for Cuban hand made cigars (brand name?) and "Prentis...All Others..." the horses partially block the letters. Possibly a cool fall day, all wearing coats and the gentleman who are in front have a blanket on their knees. The tintype was acquired in the San Francisco Bay Area.
