The number 47 in white ink, probably in Antoin Sevruguin hand, appears on recto.
This photograph forms part of a group that is believed to have belonged to Earl Thomas Crain (1907-1989), an American foreign service officer who was stationed in Iran from 1935. The group of photographs are believed to have been originally acquired by the father of Crain’s wife, Elizabeth Agnes Hildebrand, who was an honorary council for Switzerland in Iran after the first world war.
The image appears on page 29 of the catalogue, "Antoine Sevruguin" produced by the Matenadaram Museum in Armenia. The number "47" in white ink appears in the same location on the image as the print in the Nelson collection and the print is titled: "In greengrocery (1880-90)".
