It is significant that Manolis has identified the earliest "factories" with photographs, including photographs of the first vehicles in Kythera.

Seven times in her long life, Kythira had been bereft of her children. Seven times pirates had left her like a bursting wind sack, but always-fearless pioneers reinhabited her again because the island ...

Atlas cafe 6-5-34 Nicholas Gavriles Highland Park, Michigan

One more menu from 1934. Some barbeque items on the menu. My Father had a large hickory wood fired smoke barbeque rotisserie. Driven with an electric motor and chains on sprockets to turn the spits.
It could cook up to 50 chickens at one time. This was quite the novelty back when he had it built for the restaurant. It is quite a common machine now, and often seen even in deli counters at grocery stores ,where they cook up chickens and spare ribs for ready cooked take home food.

Anglo-American Bank Passbook of my great-grandfather Theothosios Koroneos.

In 1928 the Anglo-American Bank opened a sub-branch in Potamos, Kythera.

In 1931, it declared bankruptcy with considerable loss to Kytherian investors.

Unbeknown to me until 2007, my great-grandfather was one of those who sustained losses as a result of the collapse.
