Afion–Karahissar, Ottoman Bride
before 1915
The original photograph was a postcard with the name Shanour Ushulian written on the backside. Perhaps this is she. With her apparel –– the embroidered silk gown and gold–coin necklaces –– she displays her family's wealth and suggests that she is newly married.
