Crete: Rare footage with amazing scenery filmed in 1910! (video)

Amazing rare footage from Crete filmed in 1910! The 108-year-old film captures animated scenery, pictures from Chania, Herakleio and other inland areas. It shows scenes from every day life but also festivities like the celebration of  The Blessing of the Waters – Theophany – in front of the Venetian Castle, Kule, in Irakleio.

At that time the island of Crete was not yet officially united with Greece.

The video was probably filmed by Frenchmen

It is an impressive, historical record with unique pictures from Crete.

According to rethymnosnews, the video was brought to light by Giorgos Papadosifos.
