Baroe, Dateg and Deri, Dutch East Indies
c. 1900

Two men - probably Dutch military personnel - photographed outdoors in the former Dutch East Indies around the turn of the 20th Century. The man standing in front of the veranda
may be a member of the Dutch Royal Marines, He is armed with - besides his dog - a sporterized single shot Dutch Beaumont M1871 bolt action rifle. The man seated on the veranda
may be a Dutch naval officer. Some small details in the photograph are interesting: the old food tins being reused as planters on the veranda's railing and the bottle of wine and glasses
set on a table on the veranda.
