Street Scene - Old KORCULA PHOTOS
Old Photo of Korcula's Street at the edge of Old Town - notice lovely public light holder at the edge of the wall and the man carrying two bowls next to it. I guess these were bowls with water as at that time there were not running water available at the island, so people used to go to Trepoci - large public container near Primorska Vrata from which water was distributed to inhabitants. Also, have a look at the background of the photo where suburb of Sveti Nikola is - there are only couple of house there at the time. I guess photo is taken sometimes in 1930's. ....More Korcula Old Photos
