Steamer Point Aden, 1870 - 1876

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y308A/6

Scope and Contents

520 x 205 mm. (2 prints). An interesting panoramic view looking down on Steamer Point from the east, with ships and boats in the harbour. A good description of this part of the settlement occurs in ‘The British Settlement of Aden’ by Captain F.M. Hunter (London 1877). This photograph would appear to have been taken before 1876: a ‘handsome castiron jetty’ which Hunter mentions as being constructed in that year, has not yet been built.
