CN: Cali1900grou

MT: salt print on paper mounted on card (20x30)

TX: stamped at lower center <MCaliambetsos / RUE DU STADE. 56 / Athène>

DN: Mr. Megakles Rogakos - 2006

CM: This group portrait represents twenty-four gentlemen, members of some guild in Athens (perhaps a law guild). The majority of these men are dressed formally in dark suits with a tie, four of them wearing spectacles, few of them holding their hat, and one of them shown to keep a walking stick. It is striking to notice that two men on the front right end of the picture are holding hands, and the man at the rear center places his hand on the shoulder of another; typical gestures revealing involvement in some brotherhood.
