Object:Studio portrait of a man
Description:Medium close-up shot in an oval frame, depicting a man in a suit.
Comment:There are two pieces of information concerning this photograph. The National Museum of Military History in Sofia (2011) identifies the name of the person in the picture as S. K. Anchov. On the photograph's verso there are two hand-written inscriptions; one in blue ink, reading: "As a keepsake / N. V. Saranov / Stara Zagora / 28 of June 188[5?]"; the other one in pencil in Bulgarian (probably added later by the archive): "N. V. Saranov from Gabrovo, secondary teacher of long standing in Sofia [girl...?]".
