An archive photo album of late 19th century, handed to Fabio Tito’s grandmother Teodora Bragiotti, nee Tarrabocchia. Of the 81 individual photos only 7 have inscriptions on the reverse (indicated below), and from these clues it appears this album belonged to the Reggio / Barry family of Smyrna, with a rough date range of 1860-1880. Hopefully in time more names will come to light, however they also show the range of photo studios active at the time in Smyrna / Constantinople, though some of the photographs were clearly taken abroad (Paris, New Jersey etc.).
