Hotel Korcula in 1930s

My brand new discovery of another interesting old image of Korcula Town is here!

The image is actually a scan of old postcard printed  in 1930’s. The postcard has description saying “Korcula – Obala i Setaliste” meaning “Korcula – harbour and promenade” which is also translated in Italian as “Curzola – La Marina“.

Hotel Korcula is on the very left side of the image, shown as two storey building (see Hotel Korcula as one storey building).

On the other side is a large building which was demolished 1950’s. In front of it is some kind of wooden building which reminds me of a large garden shed (storage). My guess is it was used to store various supplies delivered by ferries to Korcula (called “parobrod” at the time).

The slopes of Forteca are completely bare and very different than nowadays. Riva (Harbour) is almost empty (not as here in 1950’s , nor here, recently) with just few man walking around…
