Photographs of Barotseland [i.e. Western province in Zambia], circa 1945, 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
Conditions Governing Access
Unless restrictions apply, the collection is open for consultation by researchers using the Manuscripts Reading Room at Cambridge University Library.

Information about opening hours and obtaining a Cambridge University Library reader's ticket is available from the Library's website (www.lib.cam.ac.uk).
