"In the Camp of the Besiegers - M. Mieczkowskiego, Photographer to the Imperial Court, at Work"
 
(Pers. email - 12 Dec 2011 - Dainius Junevicius)
 
Warsaw photographer Jan Mieczkowski (1830-1889) was taking pictures of the Russian army manoeuvres together with another Warsaw photographer - Konrad Brandel and most probably this photograph has been taken by the latter.
 
This woodcut was published in the illustrated London weekly The Graphic, 23 October, 1886, page 432.
 
(Editorial note - 12 Dec 2011 - Alan Griffiths)
 
We would be interested to learn if the original photograph on which this woodcut was based still exists.
