This photograph is a portrait of a wounded non commissioned Bulgarian military officer. The preceding description of this gentleman is not confirmed information. It is also unknown, due to translation limitations, what the name of the photographer is and in what country and city the studio was located in. Hopefully, someone from cabinet card gallery’s vast unpaid research department , will leave a comment providing additional information about the subject of this photograph.

  1. The word at lower right translates as Sofia, the city in which the portrait was made. The coat of arms at bottom center is correct for the Kingdom of Bulgaria, was well. Not sure why a photographer would be authorized to use the royal seal in this way, though.

  2. Yes, Sofia. I can’t quite get the Photographer’s name. The coat of arms would be there if the photographer had received a commission from the royal family. I’m guessing by his uniform this is turn of the century, about the time of the Balkan wars.
