PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY WOMAN IN FOCSANI, ROMANIA

romanian folk

This vintage real photo postcard features a pretty woman posing for her portrait at a studio in Focsani, Romania. Foscani is the capital city of Vrancea County and is located on the shores of the Milcov River in the historic region of Moldavia. The woman in this image is nicely dressed in what I believe is a traditional regional clothing. She is wearing a flower in her hair and she is coyly looking at the camera. Note that the photographer’s backdrop does not meet the floor. Writing on the reverse of this postcard indicates that the photograph was taken in 1937 and that the postcard was addressed to an individual living in Bucharest, Romania. Bucharest is that nation’s capital and largest city.
