1428 – more old pictures from Mount Athos

The facebook page of Haritopoulos Stathis is a goldmine for rare and old Athos pictures. Today I share some of his old pictures: and just as in our last post,I think I need the help of our readers, because Haritopoulos not always explained where and on which moment the pictures were taken and how he obtained them. Here is the first:

    Photo 7 shows Greek soldiers en monks at Kerasiá, liberation from the Ottoman empire, as well as photo 4 at Kafsokalívia see: http://agioritikesmnimes.blogspot.nl/2011/11/134.html . So, before WW I, during the time of the so-called Balkan Wars.
