Defiant Baggaras made prisoner, 1898

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3042C/163

Scope and Contents

74 x 77 mm. A view showing members of the Baggara tribe under the guard of Sudanese soldiers. Presumably these people are inhabitants of Omdurman rather than members of the Khalifa's army since they are not wearing jibbas. The dome of the Mahdi's tomb can be seen in the background. The photograph is stuck on to an album page entitled 'Omdurman'.


  • Creation: 1898
