Mama at school early 20th century

This photograph was taken at about 1908. The girls and their teacher Katina are seated at the door steps of their school at Kondolianika. My mother Despina Leontsini her sister Eleni, her cousin Diamanta Leontsini and their closest friend Kyriakoula Leontsini the mother of the surgeon Manolis Kalokairinos and several other girls relatives and friends are posing and showing us how meticulously and properly dressed they are for the ocasion. Note that this same teacher was still about in 1942, when we were in Kythera, during the war, and she was my teacher too for one year.
