Default Info on who did the tintype/daguerrotypes in Madision

Way back in 2006 or 2007 we were on a DQ trip that stopped in Madison, IN for the day. I have some photos of a guy and his wife who were taking photos (tintypes) of the DQ while it was docked for the day. IO recall they were very expensive, too much for my budget at the time, and probably too high today. I was wondering if this team is still making these during stops of the AQ while at Madision?

Also, does anyone recall or know the name of the people or outfit who was making these photos?

The attached shows a few photos I took of the process, note that in true tintype fashion the image is reversed, as you are really taking a photo directly onto the plate, which is reversed as light passes through the lens.
