Size:
101 photographic prints ((1 box), black & white, 18 x 30 cm. or smaller)
Collection ID:
EEPA.2002-004
Repository:
Eliot Elisofon Photographic Archives, National Museum of African Art

Linen covered family album of dark-brown album stock with 24 page and 101 photographic images ranging from small silver gelatin to large toned albumen ones. There are also several postcards and a pencil-drawing showing the owner on the last page. The album was compiled by the German merchant Paul Schaff, who lived and worked in German East-Africa (now Tanzania) in the years between c. 1904-1915. According to an entry in the album, he was awarded the Iron Cross 1st class for serving as a machine gun gunner under the command of General Lettow-Vorbeck in WWI in East-Africa, when the British fought the Germans and ultimately took over the region. According to a caption and a picture in the album, Schaff returned to Germany in 1919. The captions of the images give several locations in Tanzania, typical for the travels of somebody who worked in the colony. There is a caption under a postcard of a street in Dar es Salaam stating "Daressalam, my old domicile." Other photographs show Schaff in Tanga (1904), in Bukoba (1909), and in Kifumbiro as a soldier (1915). The photographs reflect various subjects to include landscapes (Lake Victoria), towns (Dar es Salaam) personal experiences (such as a Christmas celebration), and Africans. Among the latter are stunning high quality depictions of the Luo, here referred to by the German ethnological term Wagaia, and Maasai with an emphasis on dress and adornment. Another set of pictures shows life in a German military post. There are a few, large albumen prints towards the end of the album, which seem to depict German South-West Africa --judging by the dress of women in two images. These photographs might have been presents. Perhaps the owner of the album took a trip to that colony. Inscribed on the album cover are the words, "Zur Erinnerung an Deutsch-Ost-Afrika" [In memory of German East Africa] and a Maasai shield drawn in china ink and colors in the lower corner of the cover. On one of the last pages, there is the halftone color print of a bugle playing Askari, captioned "Deutsche vergesst nicht Eure Kolonien" [Germans do not forget your colonies]. The pencil portrait of the owner on the last page concludes the story line.
