Descripción

Depicting a trip of a German traveler to Port Said, Aden, Zanzibar and Uganda. Circa 1900. Oblong folio (26x35 cm). Period brown buckram with a commercial printed label 'Etama' on the last pastedown endpaper. With 19 stiff card leaves with gelatin silver photographs and prints tipped in, several loosely inserted in the end. The size of the images varies from ca. 22x17 cm (8x6 in) to ca. 16,5x9 cm (6 ½ x 3 ½ in). One image with a repaired tear, several images slightly faded, but overall a very good album. The majority are with pencil captions in German on verso. Interesting collection of photographs of Aden, Port Said, Zanzibar, and Uganda taken at the end of the 19th century including both postcard type prints by major local photographers and unique photos made by the traveller. The collection includes large photogravure views of Port Said by Cairo photographers Lichtenstern & Harari (five prints, with three numbered 162, 168, 184 in the negative), and six smaller Port Said postcard type views; eight views of Aden captioned in English in the negative by J.M.C. (in British Library collection deciphered as J. M. Clayton), including two large two part panorama 43x15,5 cm. The Zanzibar images include eleven photographs by Pereira de Lord Brothers, who were among the most prolific photographers at Zanzibar, with their wet stamps on versos. The images show views of the Zanzibar Old city - Stone town, including the Sultan's palace with the electric lighthouse next to it (the building was named 'House of Wonders' because it was the first building in Zanzibar to have electricity, and also the first building of East Africa to have an elevator); English church; city streets; traditional Zanzibari wooden carved door; forest landscape. Among pictures from Uganda is an interesting group portrait of a young sultan with his suite and European colonial officials namely Sir Hesketh Bell (4th from right) with the young Kabaka (King) of Buganda Daudi Chwa II in 1903; a view of Entebbe (British colonial centre since 1893); and two scenes of military parade of the local troops commanded by British officers. A photograph stamped 'Alfred Lobo. Entebbe. Uganda' shows an African tribesman with shield and spear and in war paint. There are also several other unidentified interesting photographs showing African nobility; European colonial officials (also having a drink together), landscapes; and African natives.
