Photo of the Targovishte playground group. Radka spent time there recovering from Scarlet Fever. That illness affected her eyesight.
Radka with Uncle Vaneu. We do not know how he is related, we assume on Simeon's side. Note on photo: Uncle Vaneu was a shoemaker.
Radka with Mama (Erna Wagner Ovtcharoff) and Papa (Simeon Ovtcharoff). Only after my mom, Radka, passed away did we learn the common spelling of the family name - Ovcharov.
Simeon, Erna and we believe Yanka, Simeon's sister. We learned through Alexenia that Simeon had a sister and 2 brothers, Angel and George.
