I think that they're simply called "Glass Plate Photos" (or negatives). I
thought that they might be "daguerreotype" photos, but according to
dictionary.com this refers to an even older process using silvered metal
plates.

Good luck with finding out how to clean them up: it might be worth getting
some professional advice, as I imagine that it would be easy to destroy
them.

Regards, Robert.
