Old photos of Sfakia

by Erno » 05 Dec 2015, 11:37

Dear Sfakia-lovers,

I came across a folder on one of my hard drives with old photos of Sfakia. Some of them have previously been published on one of the old Sfakia forums, some not.

I do not remember from all photos from where I got them.

Here they are, in several separate posts. I hope you like the historical views! [When you click the first photo, it will pop up, and you can see all photos together, in 1 slide show, by clicking the > at the right]

Thanks so much for posting these together. Don't think I've seen the first one before. Amazing to see the development between 1960 and '77.

A photographic passage through Sfakia in 1913 by a prestigious guest. This is the French traveler and Hellenist scholar and linguist Hubert Pernot (1870 - 1946) who traveled to Greece from 1898 until 1913 and later. He was founder and for many years professor of the seat of the Greek Institute at the Sorbonne. The photographic collection of the first period of his travel to Greece was released a few years ago by publisher 'Olkos' entitled: 'Hubert Pernot Exploring Greece. Photos 1898 - 1913'.

These are his photos from Sfakia:
