Nervous Austrian

What it is:

Two cabinet cards (5 x 7.75 inches each) with tinted images and black borders.

What I know about it:

Photographer is Otto Paap of Salzburg.  Photo on the right is dated October 1919, and signed Georg.


Okay, I’m sure I’m projecting, he’s probably some super-confident titan of industry, but he just looks nervous to me, particularly standing in the corner.  It’s interesting that he’s chosen to pose with a cigarette as one of his props.  He’s got a splendid mustache.  I’m bummed that the borders are rather scuffed, since the black borders are unusual to me.  And I don’t have very many tinted old photos, so it’s nice to have these.
