A young man Kwanawa being decorated with white beads at the ceremony at which he succeeds his father, 1945
Scope and Contents
A collection of numbered prints, unless otherwise stated measuring circa 210 x 160 mm, in a 19 page typescript volume entitled 'Barotseland', written and illustrated by Max Gluckman. His typescript is undated but the illustrations closely resemble, and in some cases are identical with, those used in Gluckman (1945) of which a photocopy is filed with this collection. It is not known how these photographs were used - perhaps projected by epidiascope. Numbers 1-54 are captioned on the back, but the captions below are derived from this source and from Gluckman (1945).
The subjects fall into broad categories:
5-16 Villages and dwellings
75-93 The people, including administration and ceremonies
- Other: 1945
