In a Dutch photo magazine “Plaatwerk”from september 1986 I found some pictures taken by a photografer who lived in Panteleimon before WW 1. The glass-negatives were discovered in 1979 by two Dutch Athos-visitors, Paul Robert en Rolf Bos. They were after a long time one of the first to find the photo-workshop, somewhere behind the monastery buildings. They succeeded to save a few of the glass-negatives which they found between the rubble and the hundreds (thousends?) of broken glass-negatives.
I take the liberty to publish their photo’s in this web-log and I hope they don’t mind, because the pictures are very special. The dutch text from Plaatwerk is here: PDF bestand
