Unknown author (2004). Selling bread [digital image]. http://www.dspace.cam.ac.uk/handle/1810/950
85 x 107 mm. Woodburytype. A portrait of an old woman seated on a chair, with a basket on her lap. The portrait is in Thomson's 'Through Cyprus with the camera, in the autumn of 1878' (vol.1, London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington, 1879). The photograph is annotated: 'In the features of this old dame, who earns her living by selling bread in Larnaca, there still linger traces of youthful comeliness. Her thin locks are silvered with age, and the years, as they dragged heavily along, have furrowed her brow. Yet her eye is clear and bright and wears a look of calm contentment ... She might, indeed, pass for an old Scotch crone ...' (Vol.1, p.7).
