BUNDLED UP FOR THE COLD: ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL IN FOSCANI, ROMANIA

Although this image is a studio portrait, this bundled up little girl looks seriously cold. Her long and heavy coat appears to be made out of fur or possibly wool. Her hands are kept warm in a muff and her wide brimmed hat protects her face from the falling snow. If the wind is blowing the snow toward her; she is out of luck. Are those flowers that she is wearing in her hair? Flowers, in the winter? Perhaps its because of that famous song, “If you go to Foscani, be sure to wear, flowers in your hair”. Oops! Wrong city and wrong era! The photographer of this image is Franz X. Koroschetz of the aforementioned, Foscani, Romania.

  2. It; s actually Focsani, not Foscani, [phoshcani]

  3. The image of this little girl is beautiful, I really like it. She wears a winter coat made from sheep skin/fur which was very common in those times (I had one myself in early ’60s when I was around 4-5 y.o). I believe the flowers from her hair are crocheted from white wool. And yes, the name of the town is Focsani.
