Contribution: Marco Antonio Villa Salazar

G. Dobkins Studio, 1605 Boardwalk, Atlantic City, N.J.
Post Card with stamp box: EKC
Collection Marco Antonio Villa Salazar, San Luis Potosí, Mexico

Marco, an antique collector, bought this postcard in an antique shop in his hometown in Mexico just being fascinated by the image. Searching for more information he found this Blog and without being asked he donated the images to this Blog to share them with others with the same interest. That's what this Blog is all about. I hope many others will follow. Thank you, Marco.

Originators of the 5-in-1 Photos

Postcard with a Myers-Cope Co. ID on the back.
The postcard was offered and sold by Dennis A. Waters in May 2009
together with an envelope, which has this inprint:

Five men with a 4 on the epaulettes

Post Card without any inprint
Presumably european (bought from a dealer in Berlin)
Collection Heinz-Werner Lawo
Ich wäre dankbar für Hinweise, um was für eine Uniform es sich handelt. Die große 4 auf den Schulterklappen, das auffällige, spitz zulaufende Dekor der Manschetten, die Doppelreihe der Knöpfe mit einem horizontalen Balken reichen vielleicht für eine Identifizierung aus. Möglicherweise ist an der linken Seite ein Degen- oder Säbelgriff zu erkennen. Die Barttracht könnte wilhelminisch sein. Experten der Uniformkunde mögen sich melden.

Here I am five different ways
