Probably the oldest Ient photograph!

One very special photograph, of possibly a Ient family member from Stuttgart, Germany, has been discovered by Tess Ient amongst Tony Ient's papers. It was handed down from Tony's father, Thomas Ient. Anyway it's great news that it has been discovered.......... 

One can only assume that Karl Ient brought it with him from Stuttgart, Germany; though it could have been sent to him. As it has been preserved for nearly 140 year I feel that it is of a member of his the Ient/Jent family. Karl Ient was born in Kingdom of W├╝rttemberg (now a state within Germany) and Stuttgart was it's capital.   

Karl came to England shortly before 1879 when he was about 19 or 20. Shortly after he arrived he was married at Islington parish church in 1879.
