Here come the new school year. Holiday, perhaps happy, but not for those who have ended a vacation and who are forced to again return to school.
Meanwhile, 100 years ago, and Moscow peterburzhskikh students had a tradition of cheering each other on the first day of the new school year - all students and girl students gave each other funny cards "student types", which drew a talented caricaturist of the early twentieth century, Vladimir Fedorovich Kadulin.
It is said he drew more than a hundred cards, which show all the possible types of students, girl students, schoolboys and schoolgirls of those years - full face and profile. The artist has divided students by nationality, specialty, and portrayed a lot of stories devoted to all sorts of everyday situations in which students are unlucky, acquiring practical knowledge in their field.

Noble origin did not save him from physical disorders. Kadulin training ended in 1905, including due to money problems. Careless student tore the exams and was dismissed "due to non-attendance." This did not prevent him to succeed. Will soon be numerous drawings were in great demand. Only cards with pictures of students reprinted several times in the period from 1910 to 1915.
Unfortunately, after 1917 no details about the artist did not survive. But his hilarious graphics has reached our days. And everyone present, and may be a former student can find a card on which, certainly, recognize themselves or their classmates. one has only to look closely.
