- The old industrial building at the end of Herakleidón Street in Thissio, adjacent to the metro rail line bridge, was the main premises of Elias Poulópoulos' Hat factory. Established in 1896, it originally occupied the entire block covering about 3.5 acres. The complex was built around a central courtyard with a high chimney. Constructed of hewn stone, the edifice was embellished with neoclassical features - openings with Doric pilasters and capitals, and evident use of iron components with the vividly coloured company name and logo on the front, covered by traditional red terracotta roof, making it an excellent example of ornamental industrial architecture, considered one of the most characteristic industrial structures of Athens. Equally charismatic was the owner, and his brand of hats Pil Poul - Πίλ Πουλ (from "Πιλοποιία Πουλόπουλος" meaning, hats/millinery Poulópoulos), were quickly becoming famous winning various awards and medals, sometimes surpassing in quality and craftsmanship more established European hat makers. By 1930 his workforce was 450 employees, covering all stages of fabrication, selling hats to many different countries all over the world. However, with the outbreak of WWII, German Occupation of Greece, and requisition of the factory premises by the German war machine, production was forced to stop. By the end of WWII, the wounds inflicted by German occupation leave the company in dire straits, and in conjunction with changes in clothing trends, the hat business gradually declined. Such was the fame and popularity of industrialist Poulópoulos and his Hat factory, that even today, older residents colloquially name the rail line bridge adjacent to the factory, Poulópoulos' bridge. • • text and photo by me © • #thissio #poulopolos #hast #industrial #architecture #streetphotography #mysticathens #gr_shooters #thesoulofgreece #loves_athens #urban_athens #urban_greece #great_athens #greecelover_gr #wu_greece #efsyn #travel_greece #alltags_gr #streetart_addiction #exquisite_greece #life_greece #great_captures_greece #great_street_photos #greecetravelgr1_ #expression_greece #kings_greece #athensvoice #LefterryBellos #Vroom_Vroom #On_the_road

- Just returned a few days ago from a wonderful 2 week family vacation to Greece. So many highlights, one of which was re-visiting my favorite structure in Athens, the Temple of Hephaestus, otherwise known as the Theseum. The Parthenon is more famous, but the Theseum is the most well preserved Athenian building from Ancient Greece and dates back around 2,500 years. Don't miss a close up look at this temple when visiting Athens! It's located near the ancient agora below the Acropolis. It was never damaged during war like the Parthenon was. . . . #templeofhephaestus #athens #visitathens #visitgreece #visitgreecegr #athenian #athensgreece #athenscity #athensgram #greece #greecestagram #greecetrip #athensvibe #athensvoice #greekmythology #greek #greektemple #greekcolumns #ancientgreece #ancientgreek #ancientgreeks #greecelover #athenspride #athenslove #frommers #bbctravel #travelblogger #writetotravel #nytimestravel #lonelyplanet
