Louvain, le 8 Septembre 1908

louvain le 8 sept

I bought this photograph from a seller on ebay, it is surface mounted on a small card frame and measures 3.5 x 2.25″. The reverse, written in a beautiful hand reads Louvain, le 8 septembre 1908.’ I was drawn to the image because of the unusual composition, the subjects are grouped together but with a mixture of poses and most of them seem to be smoking.
