These are some photos from Bayswater, a neighborhood of London where many Greeks (including students) reside and have their businesses.

Bayswater was one of the centres of opposition to the Colonels, with many meetings between resistance group members and anti-junta demonstrations taking place here.

You can also see the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Sophia ('Divine Wisdom'), and the taverna 'Kalamaras', where exiled and other members of anti-junta organisations used to meet.

According to its website the restaurant was established in 1966 (just a year before the Colonels advent to power) and 'made famous by the Beatles, Mick Jagger, Dusty Springfield, Peter Sellers and many other icons of that time'.
