Carte de Visite of Young University Scholar.
Sized 2 5/8" by 4 3/16". Studio of Y. I Trozalski in
Novozibkov. Student wearing pince-nez stares out at viewer.
Fashionable c1910 student "buzz cut" hair style. Back of card
Very good condition although curling of photographic paper has
led to some cracking around the edges.
Glasses such as his usually had a long ribbon attached to
prevent loss or breakage. Obviously the photographer imposed
upon him to remove it so that it would not serve as a
distraction in the final portrait.
