Russian photographer O. Stein captured the ethnically diverse population of Tschita (today Chita) - the administrative center of the Russian Far East Region, located in south-east Siberia and bordering China and Mongolia.
Russian trading activities in the Far East brought photographers to this region. Stein's studio portraits show the diverse mix of Russians, Tibetans, Mongolians and Chinese residents of the area. Stein also photographed outside, as seen in these photographs.
Cabinet Card mounts have Stein's stamp on recto and verso, including studio information.
