PORTRAIT OF A FORLORN CARPATHIAN MAN IN THE UKRAINE

carpathian 1             This vintage real photo postcard features a Carpathian man seated on a fence, somewhere in the UKRAINE. The gentleman appears contemplative and forlorn.  He 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).
