Picture and photoshoot in MauritiusAfter this turbulent period, we move to nineteenth century Port Louis. Lithographs, prints and watercolours depict the bustling port, pleasant walks in the outlying areas of the capital and roads swarming with tradesmen and passers-by, amazing aspects of an expanding city, full of shops and attractive buildings. All views are accompanied by comparative present-day photographs which allow the visitor to locate the place within the town. The contrast is striking and brings about a mixture of nostalgia for and attraction of a long bygone age.
