Camp scene in Mau Forest Trying to get things dried up a bit, 1889-10-01
Scope and Contents
155 x 113 mm. Showing a group of porters in the foreground with a clothes line strung from a tent beyond. On September 30th Gedge had referred to ‘rain and thunder in the afternoon again, v. heavily, everything drenched again’ and on October 1st he writes ‘Remained quietly in camp for rest of the day. Took a photo in the afternoon.’ This is presumably the picture referred to as no other camp photographs from this period survive.
