Corfu Town in the late 1970s: Part Four - The town again

  The fourth part of the vintage 70s picture of Corfu island features 14 coloured pictures scanned from an old guide book. As with the first two parts, the most important landmarks have been captured like the Esplanade, the Palace, Liston and "kantounia" (the narrow old streets).
