back in 80s and 90s one of the ways to get to the island was the flying dolphins from piraeus, it took about 4 hours or so , the view at the back was great but the diesel fumes made it hard to breath in the fresh air !!....

Unfortunately I don't know when this photo was taken.
submitted by Νικόλαος Λουράντος on 25.06.2014
The photograph is part of a donation to the Kythera Folklore Collection (Chora). It has already been used in an article in the local newspaper ΚΥΘΗΡΑΪΚΑ, as a result of the transportation problems during the past winter of 2013. It depicts activity in the old molos (pier) of Kapsali bay harbor, showing not only Caïques (καϊκια) but also a motorized vessel, in the background. The picture is most probably mid 1920’s to early 1930’s.

yes not much has changed with the main street of potamos , perhaps no big changes in over a hundred years ...

Can you spot any changes! This picture was taken in January 1983 on my first visit to the Island. It was very quiet as the shops had closed for the afternoon, and chilly being mid-winter. I was keen to connect with the Island home of my grandfather, Theo G. Andronicos, but knew very little about his family. It has taken us over thirty years to put the pieces together.

My brother Ben's just stubbed his toe on a rock, or got a nasty prickle in his heel.

Is 1971 "vintage"?
Have a few poor quality 110 film photos of summer in Pelagia in 1971.
My brother and I loved it there. We'd wake up at the crack of dawn and go down to the pier and help the fishermen unload their catch, and spend an hour or two helping them tenderize octopus against the pier wall. Our payment was usually a small octopus, or an eel, or a few cuttlefish.
Then a bit later on in the morning, caiques would come in from the mainland, loaded ...
Us kids collecting water at the communal well, located up the hill from "down town" Potamos (i.e. the road heading out Northwest towards Agia Anastassia).
We lived in a house overlooking the well from January 1971 to May 1971.

in the many old and deserted homes of times gone by, this could be a regular scene in some of these old homes in every village on the island, here in the dark cellars we have old pots and barrells that contained wine and olive oil.
