Ten years after this photo was taken the first Kytherian emmigrant would settle in Gilgandra.
Stavros Con Baveas, left Potamos, Kythera as a 20 year old in 1908. He spent a few years as a cook for the Cordatos' in Dubbo, prior to establishing the ABC Cafe in Gilgandra in 1910. Stavros Baveas ran the ABC for the next 17 years, with assistance from his brothers and his nephew Con Coroneos. In the 1916 census, he is listed as a Restauranteur and his brother, Sotiros Baveas, aged 31, is listed as a cook, in Gligandra. The ABC then passed to a H. Baveas, who ran it for two years.
A great deal of information about Gilgandra, Kytherians in Gilgandra, the Baveas family, and the ABC Cafe can be accessed by utilising the internal search engine.
