1960s 2015 Cyprus

249. Cyprus 2015 – Paphos ‘Bar Street’

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.

This is an aside. At time of writing I’m trying to make sense of Doris’ Summer 1969 trip to Italy. You would not think it was possible to mix up Florence, Rome and Ravello, but I think I have. There are five ‘red’ sets of slides, i.e. the numbering and month are printed in red ink. One, Amalfi, looks different, but the other four (Rome, Rome, Florence and Paestrum/Pompeii) look identical. Actually my mistake might be that there are six sets as I recognise Ravello in there, but not in the Pompeii set.

I have not even started on the ‘black’ yet.

So, I thought I’d put up some of my own photos. They are straight as seen, no photoshopping and were taken when we were on our way back from the excavations that are around the beautiful Agia Kyriaki Chrysopolitissa in the excellent part of Cyprus around the ancient city of Paphos.

I had printed out a Tripadvisor sheet which had ‘Bar Street’ as an attraction. Not my sort of thing as I bet in their hey-day, not one bar sold a decent pint of Felinfoel Double Dragon.

This, anyway, was not their hey-day. 95% were abandoned, their fittings simply left.

I should add that at the east end  was a really nice curry restaurant (one of those authentic ones, not a flock wallpapered Tika Masala factory) who were hoping to resurrect the street in a more upmarket way.


And then in contrast, right near the end of this dereliction, a tiny church.
