Corfu island in the 1930s

 Another documentary video from the ERT archives demostrating various scenes of life as had been some 80 years before. You can see Kanoni, Achileion, the Jewish quarter with its narrow lanes, Pelekas and some activities of the locals before World War II and massive tourism. The document is enriched with local music sounds making this shooting ideal for advertising Corfu in mainland Greece and abroad.
