ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Text on back reads, "BOSNIA, A territory of Europe, enclosed by Dalmacia, Slavonia, Servia, Albania and Montenegro. It was formerly a Turkish Vilayet, but is now under Austro-Hungary. The country is very mountainous and better adapted to grazing and stock raising than to the cultivation of grains. Fruits are an abundant product, especially prunes. The Bosnians are of Slavic stock, finely formed and intelligent. Our picture, from a photo taken on the spot, is that of a typical Bosnian young woman, her provincial costume and jaunty cap showing to advantage her find form and bright intelligent face. She holds in her hand a piece of embroidery made on our Singer Machine, which is an indispensable article in every Bosnian house."
