This is a framed photograph showing a young soldier from a Mecklenburg-Schwerin infantry regiment. He was assigned to either Grossherzogl Mecklenburgisches Grenadier-Regiment Nr 89, or Grossherzogl Mecklenburgisches Füsilier-Regiment Nr 90. We can tell this from his belt buckle. He is wearing a pickelhaube with a canvas cover, so we cannot see his wappen to make an identification from it. He is also wearing a bayonet at his side. I n the upper left corner, stretched diagonally, is the ribbon for the 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class. Stretched diagonally from the upper right corner is the ribbon for the Hanseatic Cross from Hamburg. This leads us to believe that the man pictured won both of these awards. The black wooden frame, trimmed in gold, measures 10 1/4″ x 6.” The photograph within the frame measures 9″ x 4 1/2.” A hook is on the reverse. The photograph is ready to hang on your wall or be displayed on a bookcase.
