816 – Millet on Athos

Millet_1917
This picture is taken in 1917 and is from Erich Feigl’s book: Athos, Vorhölle zum Paradies.
He gives this text: A rare encounter in a fairytale forrest: The doctor of Xerapotamou, who during the time of the first World War still wore a high hat and costume, sits with the French Byzantologist G. Millet in the romantic forrest called “Dry-river”, which gave Xirapotamou its name.

In this weblog we showed more pictures from Millets book: see 191, 211, 537, 552 and 693.
