Description:

The photo depicts a young woman in a regional costume posing outside. According to the photo’s owner, it depicts Anna (…), daughter of Monika and Jan, from a peasant family from Kokoszyce. She is dressed in a traditional Sunday outfit worn at that time by unmarried women from the neighbouring villages of Pszów commune, Rybnik district. This was a long, usually black, skirt with an undecorated apron – if without an apron, than a skirt would be trimmed with 6 white buttons (on the left side). Women also used to wear waistcoats (with or without a cut waistline), fastened at the front in the middle with ornamented buttons with or without clasps, in various patterns. Such a costume was commonly used until 1939. At the back of the photo there is an inscription saying: “Anna (…) 1917 – Kokoszyce – in a visiting dress” [the rest is illegible] ; 1917, Kokoszyce ; The photo sent to the contest named “Photography of the Polish village pre-1948” organized in 1983 by the quarterly “Fotografia” (Photography) and the weekly “Nowa Wieś” (New village).
