"The highlight of the week in Sokoto is attendance at the juma'at (Friday) prayers at the main mosque, where both the traditional (Sultan) and modern (State Governor) forms of authority perform the weekly worship. The Imamate in this mosque is hereditary, and the unchanging sermon is an original piece believed to have been composed by Caliph Uthman...

These great sandstone statues of Amenophis III flanked by small figures of his mother and his wife Tiye (Tiyi) are nearly 59ft high ...

Kimberley Diamond Diggers, 1948. Photograph image of men using an old machine to mine diamonds. This diamond mining set-up is typical of the river diggers, which contrast between the modern and complicated machinery of the De Beers Mines in Kimberley. This is the diamond digging area called "Nooitgedacht," twenty miles outside of Kimberley. The De ...

This image was found among the Johhannesburg Black South African series and has been catalogued in that sequence. However, the images themselves were taken during the Kimberley Diamond Mines shoot and should be viewed in relation to this shoot.

There are no prints of this negative in the Constance Stuart Larrabee Collection. EEPA produced an 8x10 study print for reference purposes.
