PORTRAIT OF A BULGARIAN FAMILY (FATHER IS WEARING A MILITARY UNIFORM)

bulgaria 1

This cabinet card portrait features a Bulgarian family. The seated man and woman may be the parents of the three individuals behind them. It is also possible that the five subjects in the photograph are siblings. The man in the image is wearing a military uniform. The previous owner of this image asserted that his uniform indicates that he holds the rank of sergeant. The little boy in the image is also wearing a uniform. It may be a school uniform or possibly he is dressing in this manner in order to imitate his older brother or father. The females in this image are wearing traditional clothing. Some words are penciled on the reverse of the photograph but I do not know their translated meaning. The cabinet card gallery has several Bulgarian photographs and they are quite interesting. To view these images, click on the category “Bulgaria”.

  1. I looked at the photos in the category ” Bulgaria” The little girl in the photo entitled Family with lots of unknowns looks like a slightly older version of the little girl in the photo, Two cute young sisters in Sofia. I was struck by the resemblance. I think the family picture is a mother and her children, not three siblings.
