Women In Greek Costume

Just something to go with the prior post, for Greece….specifically regarding the traditional dress of Ίωάννινα or Ioannina in English, though the photo was actually taken near Acropolis at Athens. See the comment on this post from Maria.

Publisher Delta Editions was owned by Emmanuel Diakakis & Son. Address:  4 Apelou St., Athens. Greece.  “Έμμ. Διακάκης & Υίός – Άπελλοϋ – 4 – Τηλ – Άδήυαι.”

  1. Hello,
    I’ve just found your website; congratulations on your very interesting and beautiful items!
    I think this one in particular has also a historic significance for Greece.
    If I may, I would like to make some additions/corrections:
    – although the woman in the photo wears the traditional dress of Ioannina, she is standing in a place near Acropolis at Athens (it is shown in the back of the photo)
    – the postcard was made by editions DELTA whose owner was Emmanuel Diakakis & Son; the address of the DELTA Editions was at 4 Apelou str., Athens.

    Thank you and keep up the good work,
