A Bosnian Shop. Vintage Postcard from SarajevoA Bosnian Shop. Vintage Postcard from Sarajevo

Bosnia Herzegovina: b/w vintage postcard from beginning of last century, depicting a traditional shop, ladies and men in traditional dresses.

Sent as postcard Sarajevo to Wien, 1906.

Sarajevo was industrialized by Austria-Hungary, who used the city as a testing area for new inventions, such as tramways, established in 1885, before installing them in Vienna. Architects and engineers wanting to help rebuild Sarajevo as a modern European capital rushed to the city.

The Austria-Hungarian period was one of great development for the city, as the Western power brought its new acquisition up to the standards of the Victorian age.

In the event that triggered World War I, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated, along with his wife Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg in Sarajevo on 28 June 1914 by a self-declared Yugoslav, Gavrilo Princip. In the ensuing war, however, most of the Balkan offensives occurred near Belgrade, and Sarajevo largely escaped damage and destruction.
