Prilep

These awesome cards are my first from Macedonia and were sent by Zlatko and his children as part of a direct swap. The first shows a ‘medallion with scenes from the Old Testament’ which can be seen in the Holy Annunciation church in Prilep, which dates back to the eleventh century. Prilep itself can be seen in the last image – looks like a beautiful town! The middle card shows three children photographed at the beginning of the twentieth century. I don’t know who they are, but if anyone could shed light on them, I’d be very interested! Great cards!
