CLOSE-UP PORTRAIT OF AN ALGERIAN MAN IN HIS CULTURE’S TRADITIONAL CLOTHING

This ethnographic cabinet card features an Algerian man from Bone, Algeria. He is dressed in his culture’s traditional clothing. The preceding demographics are derived from the fact that this photograph was in a collection of images from Bone. The city of Bone is now known as Annaba. It is a port town on the Mediterranean, in northeastern Algeria. It is close to the Tunisian border. Bone was known for its mining. Iron ore was a major export. The city was named Bone while it was under French rule. Algeria received it’s independence in 1962. The man in this photograph has a wonderful smile. I wish I knew more about him. The photographer of this cabinet card is not identified.   (SOLD)
