Officers quarters, Fort Frederick, Trincomalie [i.e. Trincomalee], 1882 - 1883
Scope and Contents
202 x 137 mm. Showing the compound inside Fort Frederick, which is situated on a promontory to the east of the town and protected by the northern approaches to the harbour. At the left of the print is the road leading to the main entrance, while at the right are the Officers quarters which back onto the sea. The road and quarters are separated by a tree-lined grass recreational area. Accompanying the print is a diagram listing the occupants of the various bungalows. Trincomalie was occupied in the seventeeth century by the Portuguese and taken from them by the Dutch in 1639. After several changes of ownership it was ceded to Britain in 1802. Fort Frederick was built by the Dutch in 1676, two years after they had retaken Trincomalie from the French. Photograph probably taken by M.A. Cameron.
