Drinking wine from skins somewhere in Asia circa 1919-1920


This image shows five men inside a building or a tavern that contains several wineskins.  The men are dressed in three different manners all of which reflect the cooler temperature.  The two men who sit in the foreground have some sort of wooly vests that match their hats.  The two men that are standing in the background have dark long coats with buttons and darker hats.  The fifth man appears to work with the wine, he has an apron on and is filling up a large metal pitcher.  There appears to be a brazier on the floor.  A few of the skins are probably from ox, one of which is on a shelf or rack several feet off of the ground.
