PARTHENON GIRL: GREEK GIRL IN TRADITIONAL COSTUME AT A WELL

greek girlThis cabinet card features a girl in traditional Greek clothing posing by a well. She is holding a water jug up behind her left shoulder. The jug is either empty or she is quite strong. The reverse of the photograph has an inscription of a name which likely belongs to the subject. The back of the cabinet card also has a printed drawing of the Parthenon. The Parthenon is a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens viewed as their patron. The name of the subject and the photographer, as well as the location of the photographic studio are undecipherable to this writer. In other words, “Its all Greek to me”. Hopefully, a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will be able to identify the photographer and the studio’s location.
