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 is blank.
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.
