BABES ON A BIKE : TWO VERY YOUNG KIDS SITTING ON A LARGE MOTORCYCLE IN THE UKRAINE

This vintage photograph captures two very young children siting on a large motorcycle. The kids are adorable and the image is quite unique. Don’t you love the expressions on the children’s faces. This photograph originates from the Ukraine. My estimate is that the photo was taken in the early 1960’s. The photograph measures 5″ x 7″ and is in good condition (see scans). Note the small tear in the upper right hand corner of the image as well as the crease in the bottom left hand corner.

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).

THREE INTRIGUING LOOKING MEN IN LWOW, POLAND

The three men posing for this portrait have an intriguing appearance. Who are these guys? What do they do for a living? They look like “tough guys”. The men are well dressed and are wearing terrific hats with brims folded in strategic places. All three men have neat mustaches and the fellow on the left is wearing wire rim glasses. The photo studio was named Kordyan and the studio was located in Lwow, Poland. In 1945, Lwow became part of the Ukraine and was called Lvov. In 1991, after Ukraine’s independence, the city was renamed Lviv. Research reveals that the studio Kordyan was opened on the 5th floor in a building now housing the “Old City Hostel”. The gallery existed in the building until 1914 and was owned by Bethold Feyershtayn. The address is currently known as 3 Klinskoho Street.
