Girl in Native Costume, Carniola, Austro-Hungary
This photochrome print is from “Views of the Austro-Hungarian Empire,” a selection of photographs of late-19th century tourist sites in Eastern and Central Europe (formerly known as the Austro-Hungarian Empire) that was part of the catalog of the Detroit Publishing Company. The portrait, of Berta Lergetporer wearing the Slovenian national costume, was taken by her father, the cartographer and photographer Benedikt Lergetporer of Bled, Slovenia, in 1897. The Duchy of Carniola was a crown land of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918. Carniola (Vojvodina Krjanska in Slovenian) is the traditional heartland of the Slovenian language and culture.
