Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3018B/15

Scope and Contents

180 x 120 mm. Autotype. A view looking over the flat landscape towards distant mountains: 'In the middle-distance of this picture we see a portion of those limestone rocks which the ancients have honeycombed with their tombs, and Ktimu, the provincial capital, stands about half-a-mile further inland. The view shows us, not only the position of the town, but also the general appearance of a Cyprian plain, with its interspersed patches of fallow ground and cultivated fields' (Thomson 1879, vol.2, p.41).
