Workmen at De Beers Compound, Kimberley

"This is indeed a Photo of General Louis Botha, not the compounds in Kimberley. No idea how it got this caption. It show him at Glencoe, North of Ladysmith in Natal, which was the general's headquarters. This was taken in March 1900"

Hi Martin  - sorry for the very long delay in responding! We have a great collection of photography at the School of Art Gallery and Museum which is publically available. The collection includes the largest collection of Italian modernist photography (outside of Italy), Welsh documentary photography, etc. Some recent acquisitions include a rare collection of Angus McBean. My area of research is German volkisch or nationalist photography of the 30s and 40s and I've been able to add over 500 vintage German photographs and over a 1000 negatives to the Collection (I'm currently working through the negs and printing 'highlights' for exhibition and the collection). 

See our searchable database :https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/art/gallery-museum/collections/

Best wishes,

Chris
