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

In most part of the Belgian Congo prisoners are employed in important work such as road-making for example. These usually work in batches, each member of which is chained by the neck to his neighbour.

Lusambo was established in February 1890 as a fortified camp on the Sankuru River, from which place the Congo Free State could conduct exploration of katanga and military operations against the Arabs in the Lomami-Lualaba area. In 1910 it was the headquarters of the Kasai province and a growing commercial post. The Roman Scheut Fathers, the America...

Among the Biin Kaniok, the traditional house, 'nzúbw áá cibèl', made of reeds and straw, is bee-hive shaped. Each house has its specific location into a larger enclosure, 'lúbànz' for the ordinary people, 'cihàng' for a chief. Chief's houses have a second wall and roof outside the first, forming in fact one house within the other.

1st journey Jan'10 - Jan'12

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

Rivers are bridged only when they are quite unfordable. To construct a bridge lianas are fastened to trees on either side of the river and swung across to the opposite side. By interlacing these with other lianas a structure is provided which, if it has been carefully made, will sometimes last for several years.

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

The seaport of Banana forms a convenient pilot station for the navigation of the river as far as Boma and Matadi.

Judge E. Gorlia's second journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1915 to January 1917.
