Corfu in the past 1: Alexandras Avenue in 1973

A 37-years old photo taken from a building in Sarocco square looking towards Alexandras avenue. In this wintry show, we can see the centre of the town with fewer cars and narrower pavements/traffic islands. An old Sarakakis blue bus can be seen at the right bottom. At the left side, some cars are parked in what is now a pavement - in those days there had been a fuel station where now is "27" cafe (I still remember it still being there in the late 80s). The zebra crossings were clearly marked and some traffic lights had been adjusting the virtually non-existent traffic.

*This photo was taken from the very interesting "Corfu old Photos" group in Facebook.
