These photos encompass the world that my father lived in until he immigrated to Chicago at the age of 15. Angelo D. Alexander was one of nine children born to Dimitri and Olga Alexander in 1905 in Poulithra Greece. As each child left for distance shores my Yiayia (grandmother) Olga waved goodbye on the shores of Poulithra beach. That beach can be seen in #012-#016. A neighbor who lived near the patriarchal home is seen in #018, a beautifully painted home in #019, Papou Dimitri's home in #020-027. His initials of Δ & A can be found on the gates in #026 & 027 (during the day). Thea Chrysoula and I traveled up to Peleta with the taxi driver and spent the night at her family home that can be seen in #028-031. I am wearing a traditional Greek peasant dress worn by women in the 19th century that I bought from an antiques dealer in Skopelos and enjoyed wearing it because of it's comfort and breathability. Onto more travels to Dad's village higher up in the mountains called Kounoupia!
