Scope and Contents
90 x 110 mm. Woodburytype. A view showing a Cypriot sitting on a mule: 'Mules for the photographer possess a most peculiar charm, arising from the perfect immobility of their repose when once they have come to a halting-place ... The owner of the donkeys here represented had brought a load of brushwood to town one evening, and, after disposing of it for fuel, was making his way homeward when the camera was brought to bear upon him. Just at the moment when the picture was being taken, the tail of the donkey moved, possibly in token of approval, and hence was lost to posterity' (Thomson 1879, vol.2, p.53).
