1009 – Article on Athos architecture and drawings by P.J. Quinn – 1

In blog nr 606 my brother Herman already mentioned the article by Quinn. He showed you four of his most beautifull drawings. In totally he made 48 drawings and plans, all of them very acurate and with a lot of architectual details. Today I pay special attention to Simonospetras, from whitch he made the most drawings and he did some architectual study of the buildings:
