Scope and Contents
87 x 63 mm. Showing the small mud and thatch hut which served as the church in Entebbe. Bell laid the foundation stone for a new church in April 1908 ('On Tuesday last I laid the foundation stone of the new church for Entebbe. I made rather a long speech, and was presented with a handsome silver trowel with a handle of hippo ivory. The Church will be only a very small one, and intended for officials and other white people. The design is pretty and it is expected that the building will be finished in about 12 months.' (Bell 1908, April 14)).
