Photographer's Note

A hundred-year-old house on the road leading from Ayia Marina to Platanos, Leros. Its style is urban with neoclassical features, not similar to traditional urban houses which were much lower, smaller and simpler. In the beginning of the 20th century many Leriot families that had immigrated to Egypt and had done well in trading, built tall impressive mansions on their home island. They have similar architectural styles but are also carefully distinguished from the rest by details and colours. Some of them are still inhabited, some are abandoned and some, such as this one, are inhabited mainly in spring and summer. This is the summer aspect of the house with the green shutters I had posted some months ago.

Thanks for visiting, a lovely weekend to all.
