Ceylon [i.e. Sri Lanka] Tea Factory, Maskeliya, 1910 - 1911

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3011B(LS)/375

Scope and Contents

A view showing a tea factory perched on thickly vegetated hillside. This slide is a duplicate of another in this box which identifies the actual estate and the location as Matale. Consequently, this one appears to be wrongly captioned: Maskeliya and Matale are situated at almost opposite edges of the central tea-growing area of Ceylon, Maskeliya on the slopes of Adam's Peak in the south and Matale in the north.


  • Creation: 1910 - 1911
