Original cabinet card photo of a man in Ethnic Iranian clothing, including weapons. It's the same man.. the photographer used a double exposure trick to show him
posing with his "twin", wearing different clothing.

He's signed it on the back: His name was Yonan Y. Auraham.. he was born in Iran and came over to the US in the 1860s, where he gave many free lectures on Persian
life and religion. He became a Brethern missionary and was sent back to Iran/Persia in 1903. He died there in 1915.

The cabinet card is 6.5" x 4.25" and is in excellent antique condition as shown.
