Now and then ‘new’ postcards can be found on the internet. Here are two from 1958, from Mylopotamos and Panteleimon.
Docheiariou (French) – nr 922
Kellion Dostoino Est = Axion Esti. A drawing of a ‘model’ kellion, near Karyes on the Holy Mountain. Look at the pilgrims (with rugsacks and sticks) arriving on the left road.
Aerial Iviron and a helicopter/militairy trucks in front of the Serail. The helicopter is a Sikorsky S-55, a model introduced in 1949. I think the picture is frm the 1960-ties.
Nicolas Bouazeri, a Greek settlement near Karyes. The bell tower had disappeared in the meantime.
