Tasia and friends 1954

These three ladies were teachers at the 'Domestic School' in Potamos where my mother learnt to cook, sew, knit and weave.  

The lady in the front is Tasia.  Does anyone know her surname or the other ladies?

Zacharias Panaretos (1918)

Zacharias Panaretos, aged 10. Also known as Jim Panos or by me as Pappou.

Every time I went to see Pappou he would give me a $2 coin from his pocket, and then I subsequently raided the fridge for rizogalo. We sat in the sun by the window as he did crosswords and generally appreciated the beauty of knowledge, while I ate rizogalo and wondered why Pappou was better than me at lego.
