Corfu Old Photos – Corfu of 1900 Through Unique Photos

Last updated on May 2nd, 2021 at 10:19 pm

Rulers and especially important people may write history, but ordinary people are the ones who actually make it, and to begin to write about the habits, lifestyle, and obvious difficulties of society in the early 20th century we would need many pages and it would be very difficult to write clearly and accurately.

Everything becomes easier with these old photos of Corfu which reveal to us the life in that distant era.

Observing facial expressions, their dress,  or watching them working hard in the fields, we understand many things about their way of life, we discover that their world and their character was very different.

We see ordinary people trying to survive in a difficult environment, where the work was hard and lasted almost all day, material possessions were very limited and only enjoyed by a narrow circle of wealthy people.

Their faces show innocence if we compare them with modern people, lacking greed and consumerism, mostly poor but happier, it seems to look at the prematurely aged but cheerful faces, than their wealthier descendants

The women were especially worthy of admiration, it is more than obvious that their life was very hard, they worked hard and were socially oppressed both by the social environment but mainly from their family, to such an extent that makes us wonder how they managed to live, something that today’s women certainly could not put up with.

Fortunately, the world is changing, and development solves many of the problems of the past but it also creates new issues and divisions.

We simply present these old Corfu photos, so everyone can draw their own conclusions.

150 Old Photos From Greece [1900] by Fred Boissonnas

Black & White Greek Photos – 100+ years ago

Greece old photos - Pic of the Parthenon at 1908
Greece old photos – Pic of the Parthenon at 1908
This is a photo of whatever remained of Parthenon in 1908. Over the centuries, warfare and other atrocities almost disappear this symbol of our national heritage.
Thus we see why all restoration was necessary even with their faults, thanks to this, a monument now stands upright with all his majesty over the Acropolis.

The Philhellene Swiss photographer Fred Boissonnas(1858-1946) was the first foreign photographer who traveled so much in the Greek land from 1903 and for nearly three decades following.

Fred Boissonnas was born in 1858 in Geneva from a family that moved from Marseilles in southern France to Switzerland.

Due to the origin of the family, Fred believed that he was a descendant of Greek navigators, this may explain his interest and love for the Greeks, especially those of the countryside …

Fred Boissonnas first stepped foot in Greece at 1903 in Corfu, from where chronologically his first photos are, after this he went to Athens which had visited numerous times and from there he wandered across the entire Greek territory and also in the new under Greek unification countries as Macedonia, Thrace, Epirus, Aegean islands, etc..

Generally, he did not leave an inch of Greek soil without recording it with his camera.

Towards the end of his Greek adventure shortly before 1930, he spends some time in Mount Athos where he photographed many details of monastic life and the monasteries.

He died in Geneva in 1946.

His work was innovative and proved decisive in the development of Greek photography during the 20th century.

Through photos and albums, he presents a panorama of Greece during the interwar period, also helping to shape the European public opinion of Greece for the same period.

The work of Fred Boissonnas, although known in Europe in the early 20th century, now needs a second showing.

Progress in technical issues, the discovery of color, easy to use cameras, plus the ease with which we travel, may make the project appear obsolete, but to the historical glance it has great value and it also shows modernism in comparison with other photographers who wandered in Greece at that time.

The artist has recorded things that have disappeared, but also gives us a picture of Greece that extends beyond simple ethnographic pieces of evidence.

His great faith and admiration for this country are transmitted through his work with tenderness and love which can be seen through his work even today after so many years.

These characteristics give soul to these pieces of paper, which otherwise could remain simple pictures …
