    Large Cabinet Photo taken in the field of two Imperial Army Privates, one Infantry, the other in the Imperial Russian Air Service, dated December of 1914 on the reverse.

    Large Cabinet Photo taken in the field of two Imperial Army Privates, one Infantry, the other in the Imperial Russian Air Service, dated December of 1914 on the reverse.

    Measures overall 4 1/4" by 6 1/2", the image size is 4" by 5 3/4". Nicely detailed image. Generic mounting board has English language imprint "CABINET PORTRAIT". Note the snow on the soldier's boots - if this was not taken in the field, it was certainly taken outdoors in a courtyard where the photographer took advantage of natural light. The standing soldier wears an infantryman's belt buckle. The seated soldier holds a pair of binoculars in his left hand and wears an engineer's belt buckle. His shoulder strap clearly has a winged propeller and a large Roman numeral XVIII. The reverse has a tiny written inscription that seems to be a signature and a 30 December 1914 date.

    Very good condition. Apparently, the photo suffered a tiny scrape just below the collar of the seated soldier and someone years ago retouched it the "old school" way with watercolors. The upper two thirds of the photograph has come loose from the backing. Whether this separation occurred as the result of age or a previous owner deliberately tried to work part of the photo free, we do not know. There is another photo of the same two soldiers on the back of the photo paper; the glue that was once applied to it has made it very difficult to see. Fortunately, the soldiers' faces on the front of the mount are unblemished and their uniform details are quite clear.
