South Africa. A young officer photographed in Natal, c 1870s / 80s


South Africa. A rather spotted carte de visite by Natal Photographic Studio H. Kisch, Maritzburg, Natal showing a three quarter length portrait of a young officer in the light weight tropical red service dress uniform with Sam Browne and sword, wearing the white tropical helmet. Although undated this card probably dates from the 1880s, shortly after the Zulu War. The spotting appears to be in the negative suggesting this print is perhaps a copy from a slightly earlier plate.     jan17/3
