Nicosia, from the City Wall, 1878

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3018A/14

Scope and Contents

180 x 117 mm. Autotype. A view looking between clumps of palm trees towards minarets in the distance: 'These heavenward-pointing spires of a crushed and heavy laden race vie with Nature in adorning the scene ... The photograph affords a most attractive glimpse of the capital, which here appears to be a perfect garden of cultivation. The picture faithfully represents a portion of the outskirts of the town, but many quarters are to be found in which desolation reigns supreme' (Thomson 1879, vol.1, p.13).
