Mount Athos, 1971
by Dr Nicholas Exadaktylos
The pictures of this presentation (a sample of over 300 from a total of 736 slides) can be used to obtain an idea about the changes done in Mount Athos since 1971. The image of the Holy Mountain changed more in the last fifty years than in the previous thousand ones.
The geographical coordinates are those of the object shown, not of the position of the camera used.

The development of these slides in 1971 was very bad. All slides were digitized with an Epson Perfection V750 PRO scanner.
Dust and other marks on the slide surfaces were removed with Epson’s and other software. Some bad work of the development (as result of overused chemicals) is still visible but I believe that these pictures have something to offer despite their faults.
Some commentary will be added to most of the pictures.
Please allow me some time…
