George Laurantus. Publicity shot. Junee Athenium Theatre.

The new migrants obviously had enough confidence to indulge in promotion of their business's. George looks like he is really enjoying himself. There are surely other photographs of similar type featuring Kytherians from the years when Kytherians dominated Cinema ownership in NSW?

Angelo Megaloconomos (Caponas) at Stanthorpe QLD

This is my grandfather Evangeli Megaloconomos sitting outside his cafe in Stanthorpe QLD in about 1917. He returned to Kythera soon after this - where he remained for the rest of his life. I was lucky to meet him in 1979, on my first trip to Kythera. I won't ever forget the kindness of that greeting

Civic Theatre Scone

THE SPEECH I DID GIVE By Minas T Coroneo

Prompted by Kiriaki Orfanos’s touching memoir of her family’s New York Café in the Kytherian of August 2004, I dug up a speech I gave in 1997 when the local Historical Society in Scone launched a book on the history of our family cinema, the Civic. I contacted one Kevin Cork at the time who was researching the Greek connection in cinemas in Australia – tragically Kevin died prematurely but a draft of his work has been handed on to the ...

Paragon Cafe - Cheque.

As Kytherian shop keepers became more affluent in the period after WWII, they began to make displays of this new found affluence.

This is reflected in the ornate Art Deco re-furbishment of many of the shops and shop fixtures - but is also manifest in simple things - such as the elaborate and artistic designs of business and Company cheques, for example.

This is cheque from the famous Paragon Cafe in Katooomba, NSW. [There are multiple entries for the Paragon ...

Gunnedah Museum - Gunnedah, New South Wales, Australia, housing a number of Kytherian photographs and artefacts.

Gunnedah Museum - Gunnedah, New South Wales, Australia, was created from a disused Water Tower.

From the the nondescript exterior it would be impossible to realise that the interior houses three-storey's of photographs, articles, letters, and other artefacts, pertaining to Gunnedah's history.

It also houses a number of Kytherian photographs and artefacts.
