What is www.oldphotosofcyprus.com?
This website is a place for anyone to share their photos
taken on the wonderful island of Cyprus from years gone by.
www.oldphosofcyprus.com has been created
because of our fascination of seeing how things used to be.
There must be thousands of old photos of Cyprus hidden away
in attics and closets. With this website we hope to bring
them into the 21st century for everyone to enjoy.
Cyprus has changed dramatically over the years with increased
tourism, industry and international business. Whilst at the
same time there are many sights which have hardly been changed
We also have a "now
and then" section which shows places as
they are now with how they were then.
After you have registered you can upload your old photos
of Cyprus. Your original photo is archived in our database
and visitors to the website can view 'previews' of the photos
on screen. You will be able to view your orignal full-size
photo when you are logged in and in the future we hope to
offer the facility for people to order high quality prints
of the photos. If someone orders a print of a photo you uploaded,
you will receive a royalty payment.
If you have old photos of Cyprus, but do not have the facility
to scan them into your computer, we will soon be offering
a free photo and negative scanning service.
