Dominique Castagna "Skelettmensch"

French carte de visite portrait of the famed Dominique Castagna, known as "the Mummy Man," here presented nude, leaning on a pillar in Camile Brion's studio, Marseille. On verso: written in pen, "Skelettmensch, Msr. Castagna." Printed "S. Sachs, Variety-Agent, Wien, IX. Wasagasse 24." The fluency in Europe in presenting human oddities is evident here with this French performer who has an Austrian agent being photographed in a studio in Marseille.
