Brothers Haig and Levon Mangoian established Mangoian Bros in 1924.



They worked as studio photographers specialising in portraits and outside work producing postcards etc.

They began trading in the late 30s and after the Second World War more emphasis was given to importing and selling – the studio was gradually run down although the outside photographic work continued.

The brothers also maintained the largest Black and White photolab on the island at its peak employing 4 lab technicians and printing everything from snapshots to murals.The company Mangoian Bros Ltd was established in 1958.

Most of the photographs depict a beautiful, virgin island, then a colony. The same island so well described in Lawrence Durell’s “Bitter Lemons” – at this strange time in our history, a time which was destined to indelibly mark the future course of the country.
