YOUNG GIRL WITH A FAR OFF STARE SOMEWHERE IN EUROPE

A young girl with a “far away” expression is captured in this cabinet card portrait. She is wearing a white gown and her appearance can be described as “haunting”. The previous owner of this photograph asserts that it is of Bulgarian origin and was from a studio in Sofia. The reverse of the image has a printed medal dated 1892 which informs the viewer that the photograph was taken after that date. Assistance from cabinet card gallery visitors would be appreciated in determining the country where this picture originated.

  1. Lovely image. Let’s see if my little bit of college Russian is of any use here after all these years. Yes, the five-letter word in the lower right is Sofia in the Cyrillic alphabet. As for the photographer, I hunted around a bit online based on what I could decipher from the letters, and it looks like it’s Dimitar A. Karastoyanov. Hope that’s helpful.
