Sudan, 1902-1905

 Record Group — Carton: 45
Identifier: 45

Scope and Contents

The album may have been compiled by an official of S.D. & E. Co., which is mentioned in a few of the captions (see nos. 20 & 27). It seems to have been a general trading company with stations along the Nile and to have built its own steamers. It is highly unusual to find an album of photographs devoted entirely to this region. Note that S.D. & E. Co. is also referred to as S.D. Co. throughout the captions.

Some of the loose panorama photographs show an unidentified shoreline and others show construction in and around an unidentified town. Since three of the photographs include C.G. Gordon's statue (one at a distance and not identified), the photographs of the town and shoreline may be of Khartoum.
