Baroness Sidonia de Barcsy

Supposedly the famed bearded Baroness did not arrive in the U.S. until 1903, yet this Russian Carte De Visite photo is dated 1904 on its verso. In addition there is extensive Cyrillic writing and the name of the Moscow-based photo studio: "VISIT PORTRAIT." "VISIT PORTRAIT" is also printed on the front of the card in gold ink.
