Description

This Hampton Dunn Collection of Florida Postcards image of the Greek Quarter is probably Athens Street around 1910. Not long after the Greeks arrived in large numbers, the Greektown area developed with homes, stores, churches, restaurants, coffeehouses, and recreational facilities stretching from the Sponge Docks to the central section of Tarpon Springs. According to the 1910 census, the Greektown community supported 11 house carpenters, who were rarely unemployed.
