FIVE ADORABLE SIBLINGS IN CHALKIDA, GREECE

This vintage real photo postcard features five adorable siblings. It is a bit puzzling that four of the children are wearing winter coats, while the older boy is wearing shorts and an open jacket. The photo was taken at a studio in Chalkida, Greece.  Chalkida is the major town on the island of Euboea. This postcard is in good condition (see scan). Note the small crease that runs from the edge of the card and across the oldest boy’s right coat sleeve.

TWO LOVELY SISTERS DISPLAY AN AFFECTIONATE POSE IN KOKINIA, GREECE

This vintage photograph features two young ladies in an affectionate pose. They appear to be teenagers and they are likely, sisters. This photograph was taken in Greece. The studio was located in Kokkinia, a suburb of Athens. After 1940, Kokkinia became known as Nikaia so it is likely that this photo was taken before 1940. The image measures about  2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and is in excellent condition. (see scans)

PORTRAIT OF THE PRETTIEST WOMAN IN ATHENS, GREECE (ANTIQUE PHOTOGRAPH)

SOEURS F_0016

This photograph features a portrait of an extremely pretty young woman. Unlike many images of this era, the subject is smiling. She has a great smile. There is an inscription on the reverse of the photograph. Unfortunately, I can not translate the words. It’s all Greek to me. The photographer is Kantas Soeurs and his studio was located in Athens, Greece. This photograph is either from the cabinet card era or slight after that period. It measures 4 3/4 ” x  3 1/8″. Addendum: A visitor to the cabinet card gallery kindly provided a translation to the inscription on the reverse of this image. The inscription reads “To my dearest Georgios as a very small token of my love.  (signed) Zaharula” The translator added that the term “Kandas Soeurs” (seen on the front of the photo card) means “sisters” in French. It is posited that the photographer (Mr. Kandas) died and his sisters took over the studio. The vast unpaid research department of the cabinet card gallery never cease to amaze me. They are resourceful researchers and well informed in multiple interest areas. Thanks to all the visitors that contribute their time and knowledge to increase the quality of the site.

PARTHENON GIRL: GREEK GIRL IN TRADITIONAL COSTUME AT A WELL

greek girlThis cabinet card features a girl in traditional Greek clothing posing by a well. She is holding a water jug up behind her left shoulder. The jug is either empty or she is quite strong. The reverse of the photograph has an inscription of a name which likely belongs to the subject. The back of the cabinet card also has a printed drawing of the Parthenon. The Parthenon is a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens viewed as their patron. The name of the subject and the photographer, as well as the location of the photographic studio are undecipherable to this writer. In other words, “Its all Greek to me”. Hopefully, a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will be able to identify the photographer and the studio’s location.
