Men, sheep, dogs in the mountains

rton in Hungary shares this photo from historic archives. I'd like to find out more about this great photo.

Please contact me at with info to ID this photo. Thanks!

Where this photo was taken? Jánosi in Hungary points out that the presence of pine trees means it probably not in Hungary. 

What breed are the dogs? Scott writes, "the dogs have a definite sighthound-influenced structure and fur coat, and suggest the Akbash."

Does anyone recognize the clothing as being specialized to a certain region?
This photo is from a TV ad in Slovakia.
 I compared the embroidered vest and the round, small-brimmed hats to the historic photo.

If it's not in Hungary, could it be in Slovakia, or Slovenia, or Romania? Or elsewhere? Any more ideas and info, please send to me at Thanks!
