Germany, full name Carl Julius Herman Salzwedel c. 1855 – probably Germany after 1904
Regent van Blitar en Gevolg [Regent of Blitar with his retinue]
Collection Title: Scenes of Java, 20 photographs
Place made: Blitar, East Java, Indonesia
Creation Notes: From email from Don Wilkey (email@example.com) to Shaune Lakin 21 March 2017: it does seem to have been taken by Salzwedel (on his trip, which included Malang, Blitar, etc., in East Java) and that it was printed in Surabaya in 1878 from a series of photographs taken towards the end of 1877. I can say with absolute certainty that it was taken no earlier than 8 September 1877. I have no doubt it was taken in the Oct-Nov-Dec 1877 period.
Materials & Technique: photographs, albumen prints, albumen silver photograph Support: mounted on buff card with printed decorative border in white ink
