Limassol [i.e. Lemesós], 1878

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3018B/16

Scope and Contents

180 x 115 mm. Autotype. A view looking along the rooftops of the town, towards the harbour: 'The town itself is, undoubtedly, the finest in the island. Its houses, when seen from a distance, appear embowered in green, and there is a general air of prosperity about the place which is most refreshing to behold. An imposing array of buildings of honest brick and stone, and an extensive acreage of tiled roofs, suggest both comfort and competence.

The view here presented was taken from the top of the Franciscan monastery, where I had been most courteously entertained by the friars' (Thomson 1879, vol.2, p.42).
