Rositza Angelova Photographs

The collection of 739 private photographs was donated to the Archive in 2007. They belonged to the famous ethnographer Rositza Angelova, and were inherited and then donated by her relative M.Demireva. These are black-and-white photos; sizes 6/9 cm, 9/13 cm, kept in very poor domestic conditions and in need of urgent lifesaving proper conservation. The photos were taken in the first half of XX c., and they fix the state of traditional culture from the pre-industrial Bulgaria and they illustrate elements of traditional material and spiritual culture of the Bulgarians in the last two centuries.
