Object Description
A black-and-white photographic print. There are six men standing in front and four men standing on a raised area behind them. Although the men except the one on the far right are in uniform, although there a few different kinds of uniforms among them. All of the men are wearing military side caps. Many of the men have medals on their chests. The men appear to be middle-aged or older. They are standing outside on a concrete surface with a number of trees in the background. There is a piece of equipment behind them that appears to be a cannon.
Origin
This picture was donated by Daisy Agres. The man in the back left appears to be John Agreostathes. Agreostathes (or Agriostathis) was born in 1879 and apparently served as an officer in the Greek army before immigrating to the United States. In the lead-up to the Balkan Wars, he organized and trained young Greek men in Chicago. In 1912, it is recorded that they were preparing to travel to Greece to take part in the conflict. It is likely that this photograph is from a veterans event, especially Greek veterans. However, the particulars of the event, as well as the identities of the other men, are unknown.
