Kapsali harbour in the 1920's

The photograph is part of a donation to the Kythera Folklore Collection (Chora). It has already been used in an article in the local newspaper ΚΥΘΗΡΑΪΚΑ, as a result of the transportation problems during the past winter of 2013. It depicts activity in the old molos (pier) of Kapsali bay harbor, showing not only Caïques (καϊκια) but also a motorized vessel, in the background. The picture is most probably mid 1920’s to early 1930’s.

Potamos

Can you spot any changes! This picture was taken in January 1983 on my first visit to the Island. It was very quiet as the shops had closed for the afternoon, and chilly being mid-winter. I was keen to connect with the Island home of my grandfather, Theo G. Andronicos, but knew very little about his family. It has taken us over thirty years to put the pieces together.

Agia Pelagia - pier 1971

Is 1971 "vintage"?

Have a few poor quality 110 film photos of summer in Pelagia in 1971.

My brother and I loved it there. We'd wake up at the crack of dawn and go down to the pier and help the fishermen unload their catch, and spend an hour or two helping them tenderize octopus against the pier wall. Our payment was usually a small octopus, or an eel, or a few cuttlefish.

Then a bit later on in the morning, caiques would come in from the mainland, loaded ...

Village well, Potamos - 1971

Us kids collecting water at the communal well, located up the hill from "down town" Potamos (i.e. the road heading out Northwest towards Agia Anastassia).
We lived in a house overlooking the well from January 1971 to May 1971.

the old cellar.

in the many old and deserted homes of times gone by, this could be a regular scene in some of these old homes in every village on the island, here in the dark cellars we have old pots and barrells that contained wine and olive oil.
