Carmine between the wars

As Carmine starts to fill up with its summer population, the weather remains cool morning and evening, but hot during the day. Perfect!





Two sketches of Carmine made by a German visitor in 1927. They were discovered at an auction house in Germany, and now they're back where they started out - in Carmine!

I loved the sketches - lots of views not normally depicted. Do you have them in your home?

Louise said...

Yes, they're ours. They are nice areen't they? You can see all the terraced gardens and vineyards there used to be before they were abandoned and grew over.

Debbie said...

They are nice. How great that you have those.

Joy said...

Louise, I can't believe you found those sketches. What a treasure.
