Abdullah frères 
Backmak for Abdullah Frères, Photographes de S.M.I. le Sultan. S. & J. Successeurs - Pera - Constantinople 
1900 (ca) 
Boudoir card, silver gelatin print, backmark 
23 x 17 cm 
Private collection of John Toohey 
The fact that the backmark includes "S. & J. Successeurs" is interesting. John Toohey (per. email, 2 June 2012) suggested that "this was taken at the time of the transition when Sebah and Joaillier were keeping the Abdullah Freres name going for commercial reasons. It raises the question of which studio was responsible for this portrait."
