170 x 115 mm. Woodburytype. A view showing a priest and other Cypriots seated outside a small cottage, with a large clay oven in the background. The photograph appears in Thomson's 'Through Cyprus with the camera, in the autumn of 1878' (vol.2, London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington, 1879). It is annotated: 'This is the abode of a village priest of the Greek Church, whom we see seated in the foreground waiting for a cup of wine which is being poured for his use ... The walls of his dwelling are built of stone, the rafters are pine, and the roof resting upon these is a sort of platform constructed out of brushwood which has been wattled into thatch and coated over with clay ... These rustic abodes charm the eye with their picturesqueness, but they are certainly not calculated to promote the health of their occupants ... Happily, in Cyprus, people can and do live for nine months out of the twelve in the open air' (vol.2, p.31).
