The Main Street, Limassol [i.e. Lemesós], 1878

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3018B/17

Scope and Contents

180 x 119 mm. Autotype. A view looking along the wide, almost deserted street: 'The accompanying view is taken from the front of the Franciscan monastery, looking westward along the main street which runs parallel to the coast. The courts to the rear of the houses on the left face the sea ... The street looks deserted, and is invested with a silence strangely at variance with the business-like aspect and architecture of the town. During the day-time, however, busy traders may be seen through their barred windows or open doorways, bargaining in Oriental fashion, or counting-up their gains ...' (Thomson 1879, vol.2, p.43).
