Photographs

The Corfu Reading Society has a remarkable photographic archive of varied and heterogeneous material extending from the second half of the 19th century until today.

The photographs are particularly interesting because they capture aspects of the history of Corfu, but also of the Reading Society itself.

Currently, the photographic material is only accessible at the Society’s Reading Room but its gradual digitisation is under way.

The first two digitised collections are the following:

  1. The album RICORDO di CORFU, 1892. Twenty digital copies from the album Ricordo di Corfu, photographed and documented by the art historian, Dr Megakles Rogakos.
  2. The Theodosia Mantzavinou Photographic Archive (1980-2010)
