New Collection Available for Exhibitions │ Metamorphoses of Athens, 1839-1950

By March 25, 2017 July 20th, 2018 News

This collection aspires to reassemble, with the help of rare photographic material, the oldest images of the city of Athens from the mid-19th century to the first years following WWII.

Many iconic Athenian buildings, long since displaced from the center of interest, now claim a place in the memory of viewers and help them to mentally reproduce the older form of the city, as its inhabitants and its visitors experienced it in the past.
