Larnaca [i.e. Lárnax] Marina, looking north, 1878

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3018A/2

Scope and Contents

180 x 119 mm. Autotype. A view looking along the Larnaca (also known as Lárnax) waterfront with balconied houses looking onto jetties and quays: 'Rude fetties invade the sea, while the shore bristles with wooden piles, the wrecks of landing stages, or waterside cafes. Larnaca, indeed, looks as if it had been groping its way seawards, with a thousand antennae, in search of purer air or social reform. Nevertheless, its old-world aspect, its rich colours, its quaint architecture, and even its decay, all tend to render the place one of the most picturesque of Levantine ports' (Thomson 1879, vol.1, p.1).
