Ceylon [i.e. Sri Lanka] - Boer Camp from St Leonards, 1910 - 1911

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3011B(LS)/418

Scope and Contents

A view looking out over wooded country. The buildings that are visible bear no resemblance to other photographs of the Boer prisoner-of-war camp (the nearest are certainly tea estate buildings). An interesting photographic record of the camp at Diyatalawa entitled 'Illustrations of Life in the Boer Camp' was made by A.W. Andrée, a Colombo photographer, in 1901.


  • Creation: 1910 - 1911
