Coming from the well, Levka [i.e. Lefka], 1878

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3018B/7

Scope and Contents

185 x 112 mm. Autotype. A view showing a woman returning along a village street carrying an earthenware water jar: 'The surroundings of the water-carrier in this picture are peculiarly characteristic. Over a rude frame, supported on posts of pine-wood, an old vine spreads it leaves; on the right is an outhouse made of sun-dried bricks, while in the corner is a woman preparing a partition of wattlework for the new building which we see already half-completed in the distance. The old house at Levka [also known as Lefka] ... is being supplemented by one of more imposing proportions... This rustic hotel is indeed all that was wanted to render Levka one of the most delightful spots in the islands of the Mediterranean' (Thomson 1879, vol.2, p.34).
