Object Description
Black and white photograph of a man looking off into the distance. Seems to be dressed for a play production and is dressed up as a medieval king. He is wearing a velvet coated coat trimmed in faux white ermine with black flecks.  Underneath his royal robe, he is wearing a heavily embroidered tunic, with a necklace, rings, a chain belt containing a sword, short bloomers, tights, and soft shoes. At the bottom left of this photo includes written text in Greek. Possibly written by the actor? Placed and dated, Chicago 5-2-40. Underneath that written text is the name "Nicholas Moskonas" written in different ink and handwriting.
Origin
Very little known about who this is or what production he might have been in.

Signature is illegible. Rough translation by Library and Oral History Manager, John Anagnostopoulos is as follows,

"To the nice sproutlings
of Mr. and Mrs. (St?)arga
Honor and (unknown)
(Illegible squiggle) Michael (Illegible)
(Illegible signature)

Chicago
