Scope and Contents

165 x 116 mm. Woodburytype. A view showing a Cypriot family posed for the camera inside their home: 'The interiors of the dwellings at Avgoru are poor, and their earthen floors are partly taken up in the storage of produce; nevertheless, their occupants are respectably clothed, and seem to turn their labour to good account, for there is an absence of that squalor and misery which we meet with among the poor in more highly-civilized communities' (Thomson, vol.2, p.51).
