The Ambulant Barber

Yet another unused postcard from Egypt, credited to "B. LIVADAS & COUTSICOS-CAIRO."  I couldn't find anything about these photographers,on line,  but was able to find plenty of examples of their work, including this one, which is part of the collection from The Boston Museum of Fine Arts.  It's listed as a collotype, date unknown.  And once again, blogger doesn't recognize an archaic photographic process as a real word.


  1. I'm wondering what that partially exposed tool is in the bowl on the ground. A weird curling iron? Garden shears?
