From the archives of photos belonging to the family of Diamandis H. Chlentzos. It appears to have been sent to Diamandis in San Francisco.
I have a suspicion that it could be Michalis Patrikios and Marigo Combis as they look very similar to the people in another photo I posted here:

My great-grandparents Vasileios Koulentianos and Zaharoula Tsampiras Koulentianos. Vasileios was brother to the priest Dionysios Koulentianos, and was the village apothecarist.
This photo is addressed to my grandfather Diamantis Chlentzos. On the back it is described as his brother and wife in Sydney , and the photo was taken at The Eden Studios on George St. in Sydney. As far as I know, this is not my grandfather's brother, but is most likely a Chlentzos relative. Please help to identify this dapper couple.
Yanoula Chlentzos is shown back row, left. Third in back row is her son Harry Chlentzos, and in front of him is his paternal aunt Kyrani Chlentzos Katsoulis. This photo was taken in Kythira in 1955. Who are some of the other folks in this photo?
Cousins Diamantis Chlentzos (left) and Costa Venardos pose for a portrait in Nagasaki, Japan. Diamantis was a ship's carpenter.
Left: unknown American; center: Costas Venardos; right: Diamantis Chlentzos. These three sailors had their photograph taken in Hong Kong. Costas Venardos is identified as a distant cousin of Diamantis, whose mother was a Venardos from Agia Anastasia.

Can you help identify this couple? They may belong to the Georgopoulos or Galakatos families. The back of the photo has a stamp from a photo studio on Ag. Konstantionou Street in Omonoia, in Athens.
Please add your comments if you know the subjects in the photograph.
