[Original Watercolour Panorama of Mombasa].
Mombasa, ca. 1880. Watercolour and ink on paper, ca. 11,5x29,5 cm (5 ½ x11 ½ in). Mounted on period beige laid paper and recently matted, outside dimensions ca. 30,5x46,5 cm (12 x 18 ½ in). Captioned in ink "Mombasa through the Glass from the Anchorage" in the left lower corner; additional ink caption on the laid paper "Mombasa - a town on the coast north from Zanzibar." Minor creases on the left corners, with a minor stain, otherwise a very good watercolour. A tranquil view of Mombasa, likely just before the time when it came under the administration of the British East Africa Association.
