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?
