|Description: ||90 x 110 mm. Woodburytype. A half-length portrait of a young boy. The portrait appears in Thomson's 'Through Cyprus with the camera, in the autumn of 1878' (vol.2, London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington, 1879). Thomson wrote: 'The boy represented in the second picture is the son of the priest of Avgoru [? Avgorou]. The higher dignitaries of the Greek Church are not permitted to marry; but the papa may be wedded, subject to the condition that the union was effected before his consecration, and that in the event of the death of his wife he shall not marry a second time' (vol.2, p.52).|
