Levuka old capital, 1880 - 1885

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3091A/31

Scope and Contents

223 x 176 mm. A view from a hill behind Levuka looking along the waterfront and showing shops and warehouses, and the town in the foreground. The capital was moved to Suva in 1882, and Levuka as a commercial centre lost most of its attraction. After a hurricane in 1886, many of the destroyed buildings were not replaced, and a comparison of photographs taken in 1880 and 1906 shows the town actually contracting in size.


  • Creation: 1880 - 1885
