Chronological Photo-Gallery from 1913 to 1992
(On August 16th, 2002, I decided to concentrate my web soccer iconographic apparatus only until 1992, because since 1992, after the fall of Communism in Albania, the photos regarding Albanian football put into circulation they immensely multiplied, and I can’t manage any longer to pursue the History: for that reason I’ll look for uploading the past of my archives and not the “future”. I want to thank the tens of thousands of Albanians who turned and are turning over the web pages of mine: that’s the best honour to my life wholly devoted to dear Albania)
