We have just received the following invitation from Richard Chamberlain to visit his exhibition  of old photographs of Cyprus he took whilst serving as a British soldier in Cyprus. He would also like to extend his invitation to all our local readers who would like to come along to his exhibition and see all of those brilliant photographs of old Cyprus.

“Good Morning Chris,

Could I take this opportunity to invite you and Margaret and the followers of Cyprusscene to my Photo Exhibition of 63 year old photos of Cyprus taken in 1954.

It starts on Saturday, 22nd April at the i-Belli restaurant in GIrne at 11.00 am. The Mayor of Kyrenia has kindly consented to be there to open the Exhibition and food and drinks will be available.

 I have about 150 black and white photographs of how Cyprus and its people used to be just before the EOKA campaign. All the captions for the photos are in English and Turkish. There is a large car park at the side of the i-Belli restaurant which is nearly opposite Lemar Supermarket. All the photos are available in a book I have published, which is on sale at 40TL, signed by me, the author/photographer.

If your readers cannot make it on Saturday, the exhibition is on for the rest of the week, starting at 3pm in the afternoon till late in the evening and I very much look forward to seeing you all there.

Best Wishes,

Richard Chamberlain”
