Description: A gaucho. This dashing pipe smoking fellow has a pistol at his waist and holds a rope. There are articles of tackle on the ground, and other details of dress. The lengthy text on the verso tells that this is a Competition Picture for the Gold Medal awarded to foreign subscribers to The Philadelphia Photographer. [See Lot 30] The photographer is Julius Schaarwachter of Berlin. This shows that the reach of the publication extended outside the U.S. There is a name in pen verso of someone from Montevideo, Uruguay. This is a brilliantly rich photograph.
