In 1953 Kefalonia was struck by a devestating earthquake. A lot of houses collapsed because they had been built stone by stone. For this reason in the late 50ies the Kefalonians started to rebuild their houses. Ornamental blacksmiths had a high time and invented a lot of designs and patterns for doors, balconies and fences. On my excursions in Kefalonia I have regarded hundreds of doors and never found a pattern twice. This was really astonishing. I know many people like old doors like I do. For these bloggers I made this little gallery and hope you enjoy it.
