The postcard below/right is ca. 1865-70, before the construction of the modern Quais, therefore also before the Passaport Pier. In the foreground you see a café on piles, just like the famous Kivotos which collapsed in 1873, resulting in the drowning of some 100 people - see etching report from the Illustrated London News. The large building in the background hosted the steamship company Lloyd Austriaco in the lower floor, and the Greek Club (Casino Grec) in the upper. Its location can be approximately inferred using the attached sketch, where both the Kivotos café and this building are visible. We know from written sources that Kivotos was approximately where later the Alhambra café would be built, so the building would be somewhat to the south of it. I tend to locate it south-east of the later Italian school and north of the British consulate, facing Quais Anglais. You can see this building also in the top photo of the 1860’s, before the construction of the Konak. It is visible on the shore and approximately in the middle of the picture from top to bottom - information courtesy of George Poulimenos, 2013.
