Related Materials

The photograph shows the same group seen in the Hesketh Bell Collection, Y3011D/1, although in slightly different attitudes. That photograph is captioned 'Garden Party, Government House'. Plate 20 in the Hesketh Bell album, although featuring a smaller group entitled 'The members of the Entebbe Golf Club' was also certainly taken at the same function, since all the people present in the two photographs are wearing exactly the same clothes. This makes it probable that all three photographs were taken in early 1909 (refer to Hesketh Bell Collection Y3011D plate 20 and letter, page 21 of same album).
