Photographs from the Historical Archives

This collection features images that were previously dispersed among the historical collections of the Archives in the Gennadius Library. These images are of great interest since they document public and private moments of Greek history from the late 19th century to the early decades of the 20th century. The photos originated from the rich archive of the Dragoumis family, the papers of Athanasios Souliotis, Nikolaos Mavris and others, as well as from the papers of author Stratis Myrivilis who fought in the Balkan Wars and the Greek-Turkish War (1919–1922).
