Object Description
A black-and-white photographic print. The photo depicts eleven men standing in a row. Most of the men are wearing military uniforms, but some are wearing suits. All of them are wearing military side caps. Many of the men have medals on their chests. One man on the left is standing behind the others. The men appear to be middle-aged or older. They are standing in a large, carpeted room with ornate walls, and there is a large, metal grate in the wall behind them. There is a lamp hanging from the ceiling.
This picture was donated by Daisy Agres. The man in the center (with three medals) 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. This picture appears to be from an event for veterans, although it is unclear when or where.
