East Africa, Circa 1900-1920
Scope and Contents
The inside cover of the box has the handwritten label: "Lantern slides for Lancelot Edgell Dashwood from Graeuice (sp?)". Some of the slides are labeled with printed labels on the edge and many have handwritten labels on the glass themselves which repeat the printed labels. Handwritten dividers have been inserted to group the slides by topic, but some of these seem to have been misplaced over the years. The divider labeled "Zanzibar" grouped only three slides, two of which were clearly from Mombasa, so it is not referred to in the finding aid.
