This fabulous photo was in the new photo album I recently purchased! Seekadett (German for naval cadet or midshipman) T. Erler was born October 14, 1874. This photo was taken in 1896 by Schmidt and Wegener, Danische Str. 35, Kiel, Germany. Without a first name and more information I found nothing additional on this handsome man. Perhaps as I delve more into the photos there may be a clue!
