148 x 105 mm. A view from the shore looking towards Lake Victoria with tall elephant grass in the foreground; exact location unidentified. The evacuation referred to was Sir Henry Hesketh Bell's decision to depopulate an area two miles wide and several hundred miles long on the shores of Lake Victoria in a largely successful attempt to eradicate the sleeping sickness epidemic in Uganda which in some years previous to 1908 was killing 30 000 people a year.
