Portrait of a Soldier with a Pickelhaube Helmet
Portrait of a soldier in uniform and a stylish mustache, posing with a sword and a pickelhaube helmet. The ornament on the helmet appears to be a star of some kind, not the eagle that apparently is more common. Someone who has knowledge of military uniforms would likely be able to tell more.
The photograph was taken in Dresden, Germany. The photographer’s name is featured as well, but the text is illegible.
