    Ciao WinMokum, After more thought. I suggest getting in touch with your local (collage / university). How could any history department not want to investigate your materials? They may even scan / digitize photographs for you.

    11nov18--Ciao WinMokum, Thank you for the beautiful comment. I have no connection to SkylineWebcams other than as a user. I live in the Eastern Standard Time zone (the East coast of the USA.) Greenland I believe, some is in the Atlantic Standard Time zone but mostly the Greenland Standard Time zone. Yes Yes!, : ' film with Ingrid Bergmann, which started probably the tourist-interest.' I did not connect that local museum with the film , though I should have guessed as much. I hope you find a place for the information you have. Old photographs can be scanned and digitally converted then uploaded here. Time consuming for sure, but for sharing and preservation is worthwhile. --- Today as the Sun set into the sea I viewed this and the other Stromboli 'live-cam'. WOW ! WOW!

    Hi Sam, Just now I saw your reaction, yesterday night (night here, in our zone) I saw only the later one. I was a bit confused about it, now I understand a lot more! If you live 6 timezones away, that will be Greenland..., I think it will be 7 zones away, the US westcoast is more likely. So I understand You're not involved with the handling of the cams yourself, so I must find out more about that myself... (when I've the time).
    We visited Stromboli in 1959, and then there was no electricity! Only a few places had an aggregate, I think f.i. the only (?) hotel at that time. At dinnertime every table got candles. In our home we had only oillamps, like the ones you still can see on Roman paintings. In the small garden was a well, from there we had to lift our water in a bucket. Once a week a watership came, it didn't came ashore, but hosepipes were brought through the water and then through all the narrow streets to fill our wells! The rooms of our little house were still equipped with the furniture and dated ornaments from the family who lived there, and there were lots and lots of (old-fashioned) photographs on the wall. Many houses were left then like ours, not only concerning electricity, but most people then were very poor and so they left for the US or elsewhere. By the way, because ships couldn't come ashore, you had to climb down to a small boat, a tender, to get ashore. I saw that nowadays that changed too, I saw a ship bringing stuff and leaving with mail and other things from the Island. The Museum they have now Is (mostly?) about the film with Ingrid Bergmann, which started probably the tourist-interest. There's a lot more to tell, and I have pic's and written stories too, but can't send them herewith...

    11/11/2018 00:07 < copied/pasted | eleven eleven 11nov18 haha- WHAT AN eruption ! I watched rather than capture an image, a grand display. Glowing ejecta rolled and rolled. - From my observation so far ( on clear nights )...just as the glow of the crater(s) fades to black ,,, BAM another eruption. Many eruptions seen don't result with glowing ejecta - my guess : of the three craters the closest emits the fire balls we see. Heck, I don't know but at times I can smell the sulfur.

    With the hyperlink to our host - Hotel La Sciara - look for their Photos page. There are several pix that show scenery views - sunsets - ect. Plus pix of their accommodations. Another page has a map showing a museum there ( I did not click - but the title indicates either movie film or print pictures ). WinMokum maybe contacting them, eh? EnJoy EnJoy

    10nov18--hello WinMokum, I live six time zones away making many of my viewing hours times of darkness here at Stromboli. Thus, while He was not displaying I would read not only about the volcano but about the rich many hundred years of history about the island. You mentioned 1960, if I recall correctly that is just about the time the people of the two villages got electricity. There is no wonder then why young adults chose to go other places to live pior to having electricity. I can not insert hyperlinks here that cover Stromboli's history but doing a few searches reveals many web sites, some just blogs , some just travel logs , some museums. LOL, don't be hungry while searching because you will get tons of results on the food dish. Delicious! as always EnJoy EnJoy

    101118 Ciao Sam, all, I've looked with streetview a.o.. at the spots with houses, all white, I remember them mostly grey. And empty, cause the inhabitants emigated. But my father wrote in his story about Stromboli, 1960, with drawings and pics, also about 'small white houses'. So the poverty I remember started to change already than, when we lived there for a while, invited by our 'Torre sette venti' friends (after 'Casa sette venti' in Positano). Sam, do you live in Stromboli yourself? I've more information from those long-ago days (I wrote before about our climbing to the crater with guide Salvatore when I was 11). When you're interested, how can I reach you or perhaps the historian organisation at Stromboli?
