Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3018A/4

Scope and Contents

182 x 114 mm. Autotype. A view looking along the stony seashore towards the Marina in the distance with a man standing beside cactus bushes in the foreground: 'Although simple in its elements the scene is one of the most attractive in the neighbourhood of Larnaca. The rich green thickets of cacti harmonize well with the warm hue of the shore, the undulating, ever-changing line of clear blue sea; while the mid-space is dotted with pale green shrubs, and distant groves of date-palms wave over the gardens of the Marina' (Thomson 1879, vol.1, p.11).
