I am Andreas Tzimou, born in 1887 in
Doxato near Drama. I am trading in
tobacco, exporting mainly to Austria and
Germany. The tobacco trade brings Drama
in contact with Europe turning it into a
lively European city. My wife is Evanthia
Athanasiadi. Her father represents the
Allatinis, the owners of the
Commercial Company of Salonica
Ltd. The Allatinis are exporting
tobacco to the London market since
1897. My father in law helped me
to grow my business substantially.
In 1922 I decided to build a new
house for my family and an office
for my company in Drama. I have
assigned it to the best architect,
Konrad von Vilas.
