Kytherian gathering

The young girl with the striped dress is my Mother's sisiter Mary Panaretos when she was very young. Maybe someone recognises this landmark?
From Steve Tryphillis: in the village of Trifyllanika near Potamo. The place is called "vrisi" the local spring where in old times people would wash clothes collect water etc. also the locals would hold picnic partys there. At the back of the vrisi the locals would have their small properties and the vrisi would water their gardens. The water is natural spring water. The water is still running slowly. For some years no water was running then some locals cleared the pipe of vines to allow water flow. To find the vrisi you go to the end of Trifyllanika concrete road and wind down a small track about 5 min. There you find the the vrisi in a beautiful & peaceful garden area and you can enjoy a lovely cold drink of water.
