About This Image

A moody and powerful portrait of a young man displaying a book in his lap, placed vertically to the camera, so as to better be seen. However, we do not know the significance of the book. Possibly, this could be a graduation picture of some kind.

Front of case inscribed "Shashin"; back of case inscribed "Meiji 16 [1883] [?] [month]/[Name] [?]/[?] Taro. Back of case is hard to read as it is covered with an ink wash.
