Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3018A/6

Scope and Contents

176 x 115 mm. Woodburytype. A view looking along a narrow street with overhanging balconies. With two men in a doorway in the foreground: 'The streets of Larnaca are narrow, and, as a rule, devoid of pavement, recalling in their general aspect the older quarters of Alexandria, or Cairo. The houses, however, are more European in style than those of Egypt ... In front, over the central doorway, projects a verandah, closed in around, and so fitted with Venetian shutters as to admit the breeze, but to exclude the sunlight' (Thomson 1879, vol.1, p.5).
