CDV-format albumen print of Japanese including one bearing a sword, by Camille BRION Marseille. Card printed front "Camille Brion" and reverse "Photographic Artistique / Rue St. Ferréol, 73 / Au Res-De-Chaussée / Marseille / C. Brion ..."   ( Inventory# ib132 )

A Japan expert has written to me that the sitters in this card appear to him to be the group of Japanese circus performers organized by Matsui Gensui, which set out on a world tour in 1866.
