Research Notes
This carte de visite has been identified as a photograph by J. Monstein [according to the Latin alphabet, I. Monstein in the Cyrillic], taken from the printed information in Russian on the reverse. Jean Monstein's studio is described as being located 'at the corner of Bolshaya Morskaya [street] and Nevsky Prospect' in St. Petersburg. (Translation supplied by Janine Rankin). [PG 06/02/2013]
 
These boys have been identified by Philip Grover as a 'tailor's apprentices', from a captioned photograph by Monstein of the same individuals in a collection elsewhere: http://www.flickr.com/photos/29482804@N06/2930765538/in/set-72157607923976531 (accessed 6 February 2013).
