This beautiful carte de visite features a proud Austrian man wearing his nation’s traditional clothing. The young gentleman looks quite dapper in his Tyrolean garb. This CDV was produced by the Carl Dubell Studio which was located in Vienna, Austria. The photograph has an inscription on the reverse. The inscription is dated 1902 and according to the previous owner of this photograph, is taken from Friedrich von Schiller’s (1759-1805) drama, “William Tell”. The quote is translated as “But he, me thinks, is master of his craft. Who can at all times on his skill rely nor let his heart disturb or eye or hand.” To view other photographs by Carl Dubell, click on the category “Photographer: Dubell”.
