Saturday's postcard: Hellenic dresses


Text on the back of this postcard includes:

  • ATHENES - Costumes helleniques
  • ATHENS - Hellenic dress
  • ATHEN - Hellenische Tracht
  • A. HASSID S.A. PRAXITELOUS, 14, ATHENES
  • Procede Mexichrome
  • Made in France

That, of course, is the Parthenon in the distance, behind these handsome young men and women.

"Hellenic" is a synonym for "Greek".

If you're interested, more on traditional Hellenic dresses can be found here and here.
