    But wait those outfits don’t look greek. Ops I forgot, Turkish Christian settlers came 10 years after these pictures were taken…

    @Metodija

    you are very correct, the Greeks feels so pretty in their Albanian fustanella……. they even made it their national dress…. :p

    I am Macedonian so this question is not meant to cause trouble. But if these pictures are from 1912, how can they be in color? Color photography didn’t come about until the 1930’s at the earliest.

    I stand corrected!

    I guess there were color pictures at the time.
