I believe this is a picture of town dignitaries, taken in 1910, at the time of the visit of the pre-eminent statesman of modern Greece, Eleftherios Venizelos (seated at the centre front). Ioannis Panaretos can be seen in the back row.
Portrait of Ioannis Demetrios Panaretos, father of Demetrios and grandfather of Eleni Cominos, Potamos.
This image is an enlargement taken from a group picture of town dignitaries.
Mrs. Eleni Cominos of Potamos kindly allowed me to photograph some of her family pictures. This image shows her great-grandparents, Demetrios Vretos Panaretos seated at the left of the picture, his wife Kalliope also seated, their son Ioannis (standing), with baby Demetrios (Eleni's father sitting on the lap of Demetrios Snr.)
The photograph was taken in 1910. Eleni confirmed that their family nick-name is 'notos.'
