19th Century Anthropology

I had a request for more photos from my vintage anthropology files, and I am obliging it 
even though my ethical concerns about the circumstances under which they may have been 
made remain.  We start with a composite I put together of three photos from the Princeton 
University archive by the Frenchman Bertall in 1881.  In a very rare case, the Moroccan 
man who posed is actually identified as 24 year old Mohamed bou Zian.
