Mashonaland (general region)
Found in 14 Collections and/or Records:
Showing cattle grazing on lightly wooded pastureland on the Mashonaland Plateau. Exact location unknown, but presumably taken between Fort Victoria and Fort Charter, August 19th – September 4th.
Letters to Sugg concerning the Choma Museum, Zambia, with related material, including newscuttings; the draft of a talk on the history of Northern and Southern Rhodesia; 'Across the waters', an article concerning a travelling exhibition on resettlement of the Valley Tonga; and an account by Sugg of the resettlement of the Tonga people as a consequence of the construction of the Kariba Dam.
205 x 153 mm. Showing two Africans standing on the bank of a stream with dense forest vegetation on either bank and overhead. Exact location and date are unknown.
236 x 180 mm. Showing a group of African villagers posed with a few unidentified Pioneers in a Mashona village. The huts are of the typical Mashona pattern, built of 'daga' with thatched roots. A smaller hut stands on the summit of a large granite boulder in the background. The exact location of Goto's Kraal has not been established, but it was probably somewhere in the area between the Lundi River and Providential Pass (the photograph was probably taken, therefore, in early August).
236 x 188 mm. Showing an European (not positively identified, but probably Francis Balfour, the Pioneer Column's Anglican Chaplain). Exact location unknown. The photograph was probably taken in early August.
192 x 235 mm. Showing a corner of the laager at an unidentified location with unsaddled horses grazing and an unidentified Pioneer standing in the foreground.
Material relating to Sugg's career in Northern Rhodesia, with some later papers.

The wagons are laagered in an oval formation which is open at the more distant end where the flat grassland changes to forest. With horses grazing in the foreground. The photograph was taken in early August when the Pioneers crossed the Tokwe which lies about midway between the Lundi River and Fort Victoria.
Published and unpublished material collected by Sugg relating to Southern Africa.
Showing two young Mashona men standing in front of a circular thatched hut. Exact location unknown. Photograph probably taken early September.
A view looking along a small unidentified river in Mashonaland with thick bush country in the background. Photograph probably taken between August 19th – September 4th.
