kythera we dont see anymore, this photo was taken in the early 80s, when it wasnt uncommon to see this on a regular basis on the main road of the island as the village folk would take their animals to the horafa to feed them , and in most cases if you were in a car you would have to stop to let the animals pass...thats potamo in the background ...

I took this photo of my paternal grandfather's (Peter) sister in Potamos on August 13, 1986.
Dimitroula married her sister Anastasia's widower, Yianni Venardos in around 1936.
Anastasia had five children and died from childbirth complications. Dimitroula was told it would be good if she raised her sister's children. Dimitroula did not have any children of her own.
The children are Bill (dec'd), Steve, Andrew, Eugenia and Grigoroula.
All the boys emigrated to Australia. Bill married Helen Lourandos (dec'd) and had one son, John.
Thank you to Maria Stephenson (Zantiotis) for this information.
