Piraeus is the harbor of Athens & there are so far 2 "Castelnuovo", one in Istria near Rijeka, the other in Dalmatia next to Cattaro: both belonged by that time to the Austrian empire. The alge have been neatly pressed onto small paper octagons, which were in turn pasted on the original album\'s leaves.
