In post nr 1012 I showed you a picture of a person visiting Mount Athos in 1906. At first I thought it might be Tsar Nicolas II, but readers of this blog convinced me that it could not be the Russian Tsar.
I did some more investication and it showed out that I did missed the backside of this photo, which I can show you now.
Although I do not understand Slavic languages, I was able to read (with the help of a Chech colleque) that it must be a Consul General named N.V. Kochmanski, who visited Athos on April 11th 1906, and who lived (?) in Thessaloniki (Solun). Does the text give us more information? Which language is it, old Russian, Ukraine or Bulgarian?
