Drive-By Shooting...Karlovasi

Over a month ago I did a drive-by in Karlovasi, a town about 15 minutes from Ambelos and one of the bigger cities of Samos Island. There's an area that is a treasure trove of amazing old houses. A quote from Wikipedia..."Karlovasi is a town with a rich history in culture and in commerce, being a flourishing tannery and tobacco manufacturing centre in the early 1900s. Many magnificent neoclassical mansions can be seen from that period as well as the remains of the large stone-built factories at the "Ormos" seaside."
Driving along the beachside of Karlovasi, these are the old tanneries.

I liked this staircase but i had to get the picture quick, someone was coming out the door downstairs!

The mutherload of all old houses. I felt like I hit the jackpot on this one!

Whoever lives here, please paint and do some yardwork! what a shame.

This one is being gutted and fixed.

Even through this tacky paint job, I see tons of potential!
