Colombo-Kandy Railway below Kaduganawa, 1867

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y303B/36

Scope and Contents

215 x 273 mm. View looking along the line towards the ‘Lion’s Mouth’ at Moragalla on the Kadugannawa Incline. A group of labourers stands beneath the rock face beneath whose overhang the track runs. The line to the top of the incline was reached in December 1867. This photograph was presumably taken at around this period and at the same time as Y303B/30, 45 and 48. See also Y303A for notes on the history of the Colombo-Kandy Railway.
