Lithographer: Needham, Jonathan (fl.1850-1874)
Lithograph by Jonathan Needham (fl.1850-1874) after Charles D.C. O'Brien, of the 'Falls of Rangbodde' in Sri Lanka, dated 1st January 1864. This print forms plate 11 of 'A series of fifteen Views of Ceylon illustrative of Sir J.E. Tennent's work, from sketches made on the spot by Capt C. O'Brien, late Assistant Surveyor General, Ceylon' London, 1864. Part of the text accompanying this image reads, "A small church has been erected on a bold projection of the rock overhanging the cataract. There is a hamlet, or bazaar, and a 'Rest House' for the accomodation of travellers. Some of the finest coffee in the islands is produced at Rangbodde. Our sketch is taken from the 'Wavendon' estate, the valuable property of J. Lewis Gordon, Esq."
