Beekeeping Runs in the Family

This is a picture of my husband’s grandfather, John, in his apiary in Serres, Greece sometime during the 1950’s.  My husband knew his grandfather had bees at some point in his life, but he had never seen a picture until very recently when his brother found this.  Who knew beekeeping ran in the family!

  1. What a lovely find! If they all belonged to him he must have been a keen beekeeper.

    Hi Tabitha,
    I enjoy very much the photo of my father!
    I remember I was nearby when the picture was taken in 1955 or 56 with a camera brought by Uncle Vasilakos who had recently returned from the Korea war.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year
