Bolivian Soldiers, c. 1910.
In this photo is a scene of Bolivian soldiers lined up on a street sidewalk, in
very Prussian looking uniforms. They wear spiked helmets with hanging hair
plumes. The arm band of the officer standing with sword drawn is a personal
sign of mourning for someone recently deceased. A previous owner of this photo
mismarked the back in pencil with “Perou.”
