All seems so serene and calm in most of the accompanying photos of winter circa 1910-1920 in Greece of a century and more ago.

All are replaced, slowly at first, then with increasing rapidity by urban development and mile after mile of tract that we now call home ! …. “Time lends enchantment to all”.
