The Caucasian Types postcards date back to the 19th-20th century and can be considered representative for the “popularized ethnography” of the Russian Empire. Their primitive typology follows the classical rules of exotization : they depict “pittoresque” groups from various tribes, families or nationalities, or representatives of diverse professions.
