Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3018A/3

Scope and Contents

172 x 67 mm. Autotype. A view looking along the northern portion of the Marine showing waterfront houses: 'When the island was transferred to British rule speculators flocked to Larnaca, and companies were started in London for the immediate development of Cyprus. The place was to be raised from the dust, and become an Eastern El Dorado. The result was that rents for such houses as are pictured in the photograph rose from forty to three hundred or four hundred pounds a year' (Thomson 1879, vol.1, p.2). Just outside the photograph on the right are situated the Commissariat, Post Office and various landing wharves for merchandise.
