Welcome to my “Athens then and now” project.
I never met my paternal grandfather, he died in 1959, but I inherited from him a legacy of old photographs. Mostly stereoscopic (3D) glass plates. Amongst those pictures are several characteristic sights of Athens, as it was in the ’30s.
In this project, I am trying to pay tribute to that legacy, by publishing side-by-side pictures of Athens as it was then and as I know it today. This is a long project, so I decided to use a blog format, to slowly build up the volume of work.
Please subscribe to this blog, if you wish to receive updates when I publish new materials.
