Who are these people?
The back of the photos looked like this.
This is a "replica" of the stamp on the back of the photos above, not an image of the actual stamp. The date written on the stamp immediately above is not related to the stamp on the back of the two photos above.
However, the stamps above were U.S. Internal Revenue Tax Stamps which were issued during the Civil War. I think that puts the dates of these photos at about 1865.
