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.
