Kurt and Herbert of Berlin

RPPC. Private Collection.

Kurt and Herbert. RPPC. Private Collection.

A very crisp and clean RPPC of two smartly dressed kid brothers holding hats with the black visor.  Apparently these were only popular with German boys and men at the time. The backdrop with the corinthian column gives this picture a luxurious, wealthy feel, and these two are posing like their adult counterparts.

I’m guessing this was taken around 1900-1905. They’re IDed on the back with the city of Berlin as their hometown. If anyone can make out the last name, here’s the back note:

Kurt and Herbert [...] Berlin

Kurt and Herbert […] Berlin

RPPC stamp: Atelier O.Siegert. Mullerstr. 1
