EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures four typical Bulgarian outfits of the 1880s, during a pivotal moment in Bulgarian history. The image, taken in 1885, depicts a national costume, a water seller, a lady, and a peasant woman, all from the region of Eastern Roumelia, which was then part of the Ottoman Empire. Eastern Roumelia was a vassal state that sought independence from the Ottoman Empire, contributing to the larger Balkan Crisis. The national costume, worn by the man in the photograph, is characterized by its long, flowing robes and distinctive embroidery. The water seller, dressed in a simple tunic and trousers, carries a large jug on his back, ready to quench the thirst of passersby. The lady, elegantly dressed in a long, flowing skirt and blouse, adorned with intricate embroidery, holds a parasol to shield herself from the sun. The peasant woman, dressed in a practical, yet colorful outfit, wears a headscarf and carries a large basket on her back. This photograph offers a glimpse into the rich cultural heritage and traditions of Bulgaria during a time of political upheaval. The clothing of the people in this image reflects the unique character of the region and the resilience of its people in the face of adversity. The photograph also serves as a reminder of the complex historical context of the Balkan Crisis, a turning point in the history of Bulgaria and the wider region.
