Biographical/Historical Note

The photographs in this collection were taken in Asia Minor by various photographers, known and unknown. Sixteen photographs are by the photographer Rubellin.

In its earlier years the studio, known variously as Rubellin, Rubellin et fils, and Rubellin père et fils, added the descriptive term "photographie parisienne" to its imprint. Shortly after 1900 tghe firm became known as Rubellin fils. The firm specialized in views of ancient ruins as well as studio portraiture.

Six images are the work of Alexander Svoboda. The remaining 42 images are unattributed.
