Subject

Tarpon Springs, Greek community, sponge industry, cultural tourism

Description

Outside their gift store on Pinellas Avenue in 1948 are children Costas Pappas, Fanitsa and Theodosios Frantzis, and adults Katherine Esfakis Pappas, her father-in-law Costas George Pappas, and sister-in-law Zula Pappas Frantzis. Katherine was raised in the Greek community of the Bahamas, which has maintained close personal and business ties with Tarpon Springs Greeks for the last century. She moved to Tarpon Springs and married George Pappas. His father Costas was nicknamed the Iron Man because he was the diver who would stay down the longest. He and his three brothers arrived with the original 500 spongers in 1905.
