Passport Portraits of Yesteryear no. 22

Continuing the series of passport photographs from my collection.
Peruse and wonder.
Ljudevit Ropar, occupation: 'countryman' living In Karlovac in the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. He is thirty years old and his passport describes him as medium height with yellow hair and a  small yellow moustache and with 'proportionate' mouth and nose.

This is his emigrant's passport issued to him in 1926. He obtained a reservation from the Cunard representative in Zagreb and an Austrian visa and then travelled to Paris where, three days later, he passed the civil inspection of the Government of Canada. Five days after that he sailed from Cherbourg for Quebec.
The start of a new life.
