Sofoula Kominou on the 17/04/1966 watering her garden infront of her house.
The photograph of brother and sister Dimitris Kastrisios and Maria Protopsalti is in classical post card form, however it seems the brother has been photographed at a later date than his sister and afterwards been collated onto the image, which has perhaps then been re-photographed.
