What an extraordinary photograph! Her dress is awesome, and I think his uniform is pretty sharp. I assume it to be a military uniform? Great piece of history, thank you for sharing!

Looks like she has a knitted shawl around her shoulders and a new apron. The profile narrative states her husband was registered for the draft during World War I; so he must have got drafted. He has a neat little mustache. Thanks for sharing Maggie.

No, the draft registration was in the U.S., and that's some rather distinctively Hungarian clothing he's wearing. It may not be military, though: there's a document on his profile that says he worked as a stableman or groom for a local count in the 1890s and 1900s, so it could be the count's livery.
