Another picture which comes from my favourite Sunday’s flea market. This is the portrait of a K.u.K. (Austro-Hungarian) soldier. This photograph was sent as a postcard in Trieste in 1917 (keep in mind that this town was part of the Autro-Hungarian empire until 1918), but it seems the same picture was reused in a second time as an ID Card, as it bears the name of the soldier (Eduard Krinz), his address (Via… 8), first storey, and he’s numbered #202 Zivil (Civilian).
