Athens – This picture was taken in downtown Athens at the site of the Greek government’s economic recovery exhibition building when the decorated truck, bearing a ton of flour as the Marshall Plan’s millionth ton of aid to Greece, paused. Priests of the Greek Orthodox Church, shown at an improvised altar, blessed the flour which later was baked into wheat for presentation to children’s homes sponsored by Her Majesty, Queen Frederika.
