Carl Julius Herman Salzwedel (fl. 1877-1904) was a photographer in Java, Dutch East Indies during the late 19th century. He photographed people and architectural subjects. In the 1870s he partnered with Isidore van Kinsbergen at a portrait studio in Surabaya. Salzwedel then established his own successful studio in the city in 1879. Along with Charles & Van Es & Co (1884-1912) and O. Kurkdjian & Co (1888-1936), it was one of the best known photography studios in the city. [Wikipedia] Surabaya was at one time the largest city in the Dutch East Indies and the center of trade in the nation. 2 1/2 x 4 1/8", front is very good condition, edges of card slightly rubbed, verso has remnants of glue from an album.
