Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, "Vol I, 1909. Passengers on the Brusselville."
Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.
In 1909 the "Compagnie Belge Maritime du Congo" one of the five shipping lines running between Europe and the Congo had three passenger steamers, the "Léopoldville", the "Elisabethville" and the "Bruxellesville", ensuring a service every three weeks between Antwerp (Belgium) and Matadi (formerly Belgian Congo). They were closely linked with Elder Dempster & Co. Ltd, agents of the British and African Steam Navigation Co. and took the old E.D. ships; e.g. the first "Bruxellesville" was originally the "Zungeru."
In 1908, a Belgian, Captain Van Rooy, became master of a later "Bruxellesville". Until then the Belgian steamers had almost always had British captains, and there were British engineers on the "ville" boats until 1916. In December 1909 the passenger steamer "Bruxellesville" navigated 21 days to Matadi, its final destination. The ports of call along the journey were La Pallice (Fra.), Teneriffe (Sp), Dakar (Sen.), Freetown (Sierra Leone) and Boma (formerly Belgian Congo).

At a distance of 80 miles from the sea, Matadi is the highest point to which ocean-going vessels ascend the Congo River. In 1910 it was the best-equiped port in western equatorial Africa and the only place where ships could load and discharge directly from and into raiway trucks since the site was also chosen as the terminus of a railway.

Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.
At a distance of 80 miles from the sea, Matadi is the highest point to which ocean-going vessels ascend the Congo River. In 1910 it was the best-equiped port in western equatorial Africa and the only place where ships could load and discharge directly from and into raiway trucks since the site was also chosen as the terminus of a railway.

Scope and Contents:
Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, "Vol I, 1909. Promenade deck Brusselville."
Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.
In 1909 the "Compagnie Belge Maritime du Congo" one of the five shipping lines running between Europe and the Congo had three passenger steamers, the "Léopoldville", the "Elisabethville" and the "Bruxellesville", ensuring a service every three weeks between Antwerp (Belgium) and Matadi (formerly Belgian Congo). They were closely linked with Elder Dempster & Co. Ltd, agents of the British and African Steam Navigation Co. and took the old E.D. ships; e.g. the first "Bruxellesville" was originally the "Zungeru."
In 1908, a Belgian, Captain Van Rooy, became master of a later "Bruxellesville". Until then the Belgian steamers had almost always had British captains, and there were British engineers on the "ville" boats until 1916. In December 1909 the passenger steamer "Bruxellesville" navigated 21 days to Matadi, its final destination. The ports of call along the journey were La Pallice (Fra.), Teneriffe (Sp), Dakar (Sen.), Freetown (Sierra Leone) and Boma (formerly Belgian Congo).
