Some rare pictures of people of Northwest Caucasus and their life in the old times.
They look so sad.
What are those objects across the chest of the man in the last photo on page 2?
Rifles cartridges, or cloth rolls meant to look like them. It’s a key part of the cherkeska/chokha that they wear all over Kavkaz (cossacks too).
