Athens Photo

Picture of Athens from 1907.

This photo was taken from the Acropolis,
and it includes the Lysicrates monument just below,
and the themple of Olympian Zeus (or Olympieion) and the Panathinaiko Stadio in the background.

Two photos below were taken from the acropolis in 2004 and show that while the city around has boomed, the ancient monuments have remained unchanged since 1907.
