Baron & Mitkiewicz: CdV, 'ça c'est une fois un bon fusil savez vous!', ca. 1860
A lot of two carte de visites from the Belgian photographer Baron & Litkiewicz. Based in the Rue Neuve, 9 Brussels.
The first one is an 'anonymous' CdV. This very fascinated photograph has no name on the back. But has an interesting pose and 'title': "ça c'est one fois un bon fusil savez vous!". The uniformed man is looking inside his rifle.
We found a matching CdV of the same man. Here the CdV is named at the front and the back. The photographer made several portraits for opera actors. So we believe this is not a soldier but an actor.
His uniform and shako plate is Belgian.
First CdV is in good condition, some spots on the upper left corner. Tekst written in fountain pen under the print.
The second CdV is in very good condition. One spot near his right shoulder.
