Bushman Children, Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Bushman Children, Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Bushman Children, Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, 1845. San children being exhibited as curiosities in London. Two Bushmen...Children have lately been brought from the interior of Africa...the female is thirty two inches high, and eight years old; and the male only forty four inches in height, though nearly full grown, and sixteen years of age. They wear the dress of their tribe (Hottentots); they throw a spear, dance, &c; the Bushman, as a Corporal of the Army, goes through the Manual and Platoon Exercises; and the Bush girl appears as a Soldier's Wife; and their several feats are very amusing. Their parents are stated to have been murdered by Kaffirs, who pursue and exterminate the Bushman Tribe with unrelenting ferocity: they were rescued by a Dutch Trader...We hope they may here receive many visitors...to the Ethnographers, in a scientific point of view, these specimens of a "pigmy race" maybe especially interesting'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Leopold II, King of the Belgians, 1909 Featured Print

Leopold II, King of the Belgians, 1909

Leopold II, King of the Belgians, 1909. Leopold (1835-1909) ruled Belgium from 1865 until his death. His reign is most remembered for the harsh treatment of the people of the Congo Free State, which was the king's personal property from 1885. The inhabitants were ruthlessly exploited for the collection of ivory and rubber, from which Leopold built up a fortune. The resultant death toll among the indigenous population has been estimated at anywhere between 2 and 15 million. Eventually by 1908 the international outcry at the mistreatment of the populace led to Leopold being compelled to hand over control of the Congo to the Belgian government. A print from L'Illustration, 18 December 1909
