a picture of an Austrian gent during WWI in 1915.
Remarkable to me is the weapon he is posing with:
a long Werndl bayonet .

You would expect a special knife ( like the Ottoman bichaq or Indonesian Kris) but a bayonet on a picture like this ? I never saw before. Even if it was a long one like this.

and not to make it a male dominated issue, hereby some women who we need to show some respect....

2 ladies from Armenia, 1895 during the 1895 Hamidian massacres, the Armenians of Zeitun (modern Süleymanlı), took up arms to defend themselves against the Ottomans

Next a lady from the Balkans ( Herzegowina around 1878)

followd by an Albanian lady from 1924 and a second Albanian lady with her spousse a little earlier ( most likely 1910-1920)

Mullah Abdugafur Mirza Raim Khodjaev.
Volost administrator of the Namangan district, an administrative-territorial unit of the Fergana region of the Turkestan Governor-General. 1913.
With Bukhara shashka on the belt.

After the inclusion of Turkestan into the Russian Empire, the Russian government retained the existing system of self-government of the native people. It was based on the management of rural and urban quarter communities by elders. Among the Muslim population, such elders were called aksakals (oқsokol - literally "white beard" in Uzbek). Such a structure was close to that which existed in Russia, where from the 16th century elders were elected to manage small administrative-territorial units and public groups. Therefore, the Central Asian form of self-government turned out to be familiar to the Russian administration.
The population of Turkestan in each county was divided into volosts. The volost administrators were at the head of the volosts
The elections of the volost administrator were two-stage, first a village gathering was held, at which one elective was elected from 50 home ownership. Then the elected representatives of rural societies gathered at the volost congress, which was held in the presence of representatives of the Russian administration. As a rule, it was the county chief or his assistant, who observed the order, while not interfering in the course of the elections itself. The volost congress was considered invalid if it was attended by less than 2/3 of the total number of elected.
Police and administrative power was concentrated in the hands of the volost administrator. He was responsible for maintaining general order and tranquility.

Could be a studio prop! I remember a weird story about Austro-Hungarian photos from this era, Travelling salesmen sold the country girls pics of their loved one in the army.. They had two images, with a moustache, and without but the girls accepted these as a true likeness.

I am surprised you created a new thread for these, and in the Miscellaneous Forum. Wouldn't these be better placed in THIS thread?

I am surpised none of the mods didn't mention it 21st June 2020, when I created it when I just became a member ...
and wasn't aware about all these threads...☼☼☼
reason to continue it was to have all my Moroccan pics in one place, but you can easily transfer it to the link; no problem!

Question: what do you think about the pics? do you like them ?

Yes, the photos are awesome. This thread could be merged with the other, but the Ethno Forum isn't my section. Maybe one of their Mods will think it is a good idea. Maybe not. Either way this thread seems to be focussed on the weapons so it probably does not belong in Miscellaneous at any rate. Not my call though.

Yes, of course you are right. You are very observant. Bravo. I did not focus on this, since the shashka is poorly visible.

I always have been fascinated by the old Silk route ( a nice book on that topic is by Peter Frankopan),
and specially the region from China to what was called in those days Turkestan ;
the region around Samarkand...
when I stumbled on a publication by Svetlana Gorshenina with these 2 nice pictures included.
Not my specialty so looking forward to contributions of members with knowledge.
I for sure like the dagger in the gent's belt ...!

some called them brigands, others freedom fighters: they called themselves komitadzis

fierce men from Makedonia ( a region presently stretched over several countries, hence the geo-political sensetivity still till the present day)
who fought first the Ottomans and later any one threathening the freedom of their country.

Pictures dated between 1885 - 1920
