Kerynia [i.e. Kirínia], showing the camp of the 42nd Highlanders, 1878
Scope and Contents
184 x 121 mm. Autotype. A view looking over the flat roofs of Kerynia (also known as Kirínia) towards the mountains behind the town. The tents of the Black Watch can be seen between the mountains and town: 'The houses seemed to be piled one above another in this Kerynian group, and the roofs look like platforms common to the whole town. Indeed, it sometimes happens that the roofs join one to the other so as to form an agreeable promenade where friends may stroll at eventide and study the proceedings of their neighbours in the courts below' (Thomson 1879, vol.1, p.23).
