Scope and Contents

From the File:

A collection of photographs on 41 album sheets. Typed on a piece of paper stuck on one album sheet is: 'ALBUM 2. All the photographs in this album were taken by me, on a safari from Victoria (B. Cameroons) to Port Sudan. This journey lasted from April 7/35 till August 2/36. The photographs are of anthropological interest only, and deal mostly with the Mangbetu tribe in the northern Congo; the Karamojong in Northern Uganda, and various tribes in the southern Sudan. I was using only a Leica camera with a Summar F2 and a Hektor 13.5cm. lens. [signed] W. Powell'. Plates 1-128 relate to the Belgian Congo, 129-221 to the Southern Sudan, 222-224 to the Sudan-Uganda border, and 225-254 to the Labwor and Karamojong peoples of Uganda. Most of the photographs have typed descriptive captions. Titles composed for this catalogue are enclosed in square brackets.
