18 vintage photos of Athens in 60s

ENJOY! 

Athens has changed quite a lot during the last 55 years.

Local shops have mostly now been replaced by multinational enterprises, Athens is much more crowded and obviously there aren’t horses or sheeps on the streets 🙂

Can you spot the changes?

Η Αθήνα έχει αλλάξει πολύ τα τελευταία 55 χρόνια.

Τα ντόπια μαγαζιά έχουν αντικατασταθεί σε μεγάλο βαθμό από πολυεθνικές εταιρίες, η πρωτεύουσα έχει πολύ μεγαλύτερο πλυθησμό και φυσικά δεν υπάρχουν άλογα ή πρόβατα στους δρόμους.

Μπορείτε να εντοπίσετε τις αλλαγές;
