PORTRAIT OF A CARPATHIAN MAN IN THE UKRAINE

carpathian

carpathian 1 This vintage real photo postcard features a Carpathian man seated on a fence, somewhere in the Ukraine. The gentleman appears contemplative and has a most captivating  face. My impression is that he has seen a lot of hardship in his lifetime. The Carpathian region is a historic area in the border between Central and Eastern Europe. Most of the region is located in Ukraine’s Zakarpattia Oblast. Smaller parts of the Carpathian territory are in Poland and Slovakia. Before World War I most of this region was part of Hungary. After the war it became part of Czechoslovakia. The people of the Carpathian area are ethnically diverse. They are primarily Ukraninian, Rusyn, Lemko, Hungarian, Slovak, Romanian, Bulgarian, and Russian. This vintage real photo postcard is in excellent condition (see scans).

  1. Really wonderwuf portrait! Reminds one of the novels of Tolstoy or Dostoevsky

  2. What a great photograph! The Carpathian Mountains are also home to Vlad The Impaler heh.

  3. I am struck by the bell-bottom trousers. Usually associated with sailors but that seems out of place here. Odd…but interesting. Thanks for sharing this one.
