Period Photos of People with Ethnographic Arms
 
1 Attachment(s)
Since the thread with period photos of Sahel region warriors was well received, I thought why not start a general thread on historic photos of people with ethnographic arms.

I often come across old photos from all across the world and it could be nice to maintain a general thread to share these important records of a past time.


I'll start off with this photo. Perhaps we can all try to keep a similar format of information about each photo to make things easy to read? :)


Where: Tunis.
When: 1931.
Who: A eunuch guarding a harem gate.
Weapons visible: A nimcha.

Salaams Devadatta It appears that this is not he. ... checking...ah yes this is his father of course... Sultan Said bin Taimour in the USA in 1938.

Ibrahiim al Balooshi.

Devadatta 25th March 2012 03:19 PM

Oh I'm so sorry, that's other sultan, the original photo dates back to 1938 so am I right that's Said bin Taimur?

P.S. Ah, I see your reply now, thanks!

Unfortunately there was no tribal attribution with the photo. Hopefully one of our Congo experts will recognize it!

Thanks to all for the great photos. :)

I collected these while researching Chinese Dao, all out of copyright as far as I know. Between 1900 and 1950 for the most part.
