INTELLECTUAL YOUNG MAN IN BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

An intellectual looking young man poses for his portrait at the studio of Kozmata Ferencz in Budapest, Hungary. This man looks bright and successful. If this was a present day portrait, one might suspect he was the founder and CEO of a leading innovative high tech corporation. What are those stripes on his sleeves? They look to be insignias of military rank but perhaps they are just decorative. Some help from cabinet card gallery visitors would be appreciated in identifying the stripes.  To view other photographs by Ferencz, click on the category “Photographer: Ferencz”.
