Photographer's Note

This digitzed negative was taken during the summer of 1984. The Mykonos windmills are an iconic feature of this the Greek island. The windmills are the first thing seen when coming into the harbour of Alefkandra, as they stand on a hill overlooking the area. Most of them were built by the Venetians in the 16th century. They were primarily used to mill wheat. Their use gradually declined until they ceased production in the middle of the 20th century
