Exiles at a study circle, Anafi, February 1936. This photograph was taken during the Birtles' visit to Anafi in February 1936 (six months before the dictatorship of Metaxas). It shows some of the members of the collective, here all men, presumably listening to a lecture or lesson. Light comes from a paraffin pressure lamp. (From Birtles 1938: 188, with permission).
