This is a really nice collection from one family of what are likely
three brothers dating roughly to the end of the 19th-century.

Harry's image, probably a christening photo was made by Richard Walzl. On the reverse side, the caption states, "Harry Hollingsworth, son of Richard and Josephine Coleman Hollingsworth". It was made between 1882 and 1885.

Richard's photo, also likely a christening picture was made by Blessing and Kuhn between 1882 and 1886 and is labelled, "8 months old."

Finally, one of the most unique photos from this time period has been made out of doors on an obviously cold, snowy, icey day. But, it certainly would appear that this is a professional studio photo.
It suggests that the photographer had set up his camera
 on the sidewalk to capture the kids at play.
Unfortunately, there is no studio logo, although
someone has hand written what appears to be W. L. Robinson.
Martin L. Robinson was a Baltimore photographer from 1871 to 1898.

In the 1880 federal census enumeration Richard & Josephine's household is described as:

Richard Hollingsworth a 35-year old male from Maryland
Josephine his 22-year old wife from Virginia
Coleman Hollingsworth his 1-year old son from Maryland
Thomas and Maggie Coleman, he 20 from Virginia and she 21 from Ireland.
