|Extracted map of Lemnos, Austro-Hungarian archives, 1910|
The Austro-Hungarian Empire created detailed maps in 1910 as part of its military planninng, known as the 3rd Military Mapping Survey.
These are part of a series of maps covering the whole Empire but they also extend across the Balkans, north and central Greece, Aegean and the Gallipoli peninsula, Sea of Marmara and Constantinople.
They include some very interesting maps for all interested in the Salonika and Gallipoli campaigns, especially the Hellenic involvement in the latter. In this regard they include detailed maps of Lemnos, Tenedos and Imbros. They also include maps of most of the Sea of Marmara, including the Island of Koutali, from where many refugees would come to Lemnos after the Asia Minor catastrophe in 1922.
The maps were completed before 1910, being published around that date. They therefore date from the period before Lemnos, Imbros and Tenedos were joined to Greece following the 1912-13 Balkan War.
These details from the maps containing Imbros clearly show Kefalos Bay, the capital of Panagia and other details.
