Russian pre-1917 uniform!


Hi am a newby and I was informed that I could possibly get some help on this forum! This is the grandfather of a friend of mine. He was born in Russia SPB in 1880 and served in the military. He passed in 1976 and no one ever asked him what he did in the Czars military… we are hoping the uniform might tell us something.
His name was Konstantin Mikhailovich Geystor. As you can see the photo was taken in SPB by Julius Weidenbaum.
Thank very much for whatever we might learn. Barry
