Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, " Sankuru. Baluba countryside, south of Pania Mutombo."

Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.

In ancient times the only means of communication in what is now the Belgian Congo were the rivers, lakes, and foot-paths. Trackways or caravans routs, were little more than broad foot-paths, for nothing more elaborate was necessary to enable travellers to pass on their way in single line. Usually the tracks ran direct from camp to camp, or village ...

In 1911, on his first tour of inspection, Judge Gorlia travelled by foot from Lusambo to Dilolo. On his way he had to deliver judgment among the Luba, the Songye, the Kanioka, the Lunda and the Chokwe.

Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.

In 1911, on his first tour of inspection, Judge Gorlia travelled by foot from Lusambo to Dilolo. Until 1912, the Luba, the Songye, the Kaniok, the Lunda and the Chokwe territories extending southward to Dilolo, were administered as part of the Congo-Kasai district with headquarters at Lusambo.

In eastern Kasai the falls by which the rivers draining the plateau descend from it are not well marked and happens a few yards at a time over several miles. The immediate cause of the difference of rivers level appears to be the hardness of the granitic substratum on which the rivers make a relatively slight impression. The Tshala rapids are found...

Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, " The plains in the South."

Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.

In 1911, on his first tour of inspection, Judge Gorlia travelled by foot from Lusambo to Dilolo. Until 1912, the Luba, the Songye, the Kanioka, the Lunda and the Chokwe territories extending southward to Dilolo, were administered as part of the Congo-Kasai district with headquarters at Lusambo.

In the Lunda and Chokwe territories trials were brought on account of hostilities between the native tribes, contrabant was rampant, taxes reportedly never been paid, and also because of unscrupulous and abusive behavior of European agents.

The trackways, or caravan routes, were little more than broad foot-paths, and usually ran direct from camp to camp, or village to village. A decree empowered administrative officers to requisition carriers on payment, for limited periods.

Foot passengers and porters carrying their loads would travel from 6 a.m. to noon. In the early afternoon, they would halt and put up the tent near a village or close to a river.
