Lemnos Photographs from 1912-13 published

It was a great pleasure to be gifted a copy of this amazing book of photographs of Greece taken during the Balkan Wars of 1912-13, published in 2012.
It features photographs of the liberation of Macedonia as well as the various Aegean Islands - including Lemnos.
The many images of Lemnos show the arrival of the Greek troops on the Island (including naval and air forces), the people of the Island and the celebrations that followed the liberation.
Some of the sites photographed would be visited by the Anzac and other Allied troops in 1915 - such as Therma and its water fountain. Below are just some of the images reproduced in the book.
I urge all interested in the history of Greece and its people during this period - including Lemnos - to purchase a copy on their next trip to Greece or on-line from the publisher.

The book is priced at 38.16€ plus mailing costs.
Copies of this excellent book can be ordered by emailing - bookstore-amerikis@miet.gr

The address of the publisher's bookstore in Athens is:

The Cultural Foundation of National Bank of Greece Bookstore
Amerikis 13
10672, Athens
Tel: +30 210 3614 143
Fax: +30 210 3614 163

A big thank you to our archivist and researcher in Athens, Tsimandria's Lisa Koutsaplis, for this wonderful gift.
