Photograph from the Henry Mowbray Cadell Photographic archive. Russia.
Photograph from the Henry Mowbray Cadell Photographic archive c. 1902-1910 Russia.
The person on the left looks like Ben Peach of the Geological Survey of Scotland. Does anyone know who the geologist is on the right and the possible location of the photograph?
Thanks to Max Barclay and Svetlana Nikolaeva from International Commission of Zoological Nomenclature we have an identification of the geologist on the right: Theodosius Nikolaevich Chernyshev (12 September 1856 - 2 January 1914).
Locality is Krestovyi mountain pass in the Caucasus (Ossetia, Northern Georgia).
