Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, " A lane of Banana trees at Kimfutki."

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.

The banana, it is said, was introduced by the Portuguese into Africa. There are few tropical plants so easy to cultivate. Banana groves are often planted by men; they are usually used for beer-making as well as for consumption.

Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, " Boma. Pineapple plants."

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

As tobacco, it is of Mexican origin, and both have only had about 330 years at the time in which to spread nearly all over tropical Africa. The manioc, papaw, and red pepper are other instances of American plants that have penetrated rapidly to the innermost recesses of the Afr...

Due to its varied array of habitats Mt Kilimanjaro is distinctly richer in fern species than the other high volcanoes in East Africa (Hemp, in press). The main habitat is the luxuriant montane forest, which is exceptionally rich in pteridophytes (Hemp, under review).
