Date:

Scope and Contents:
Firing is carried out by potters working in larger (as in Ebu Dada) or smaller groups, with pots piled into open "clamps." The firing is low-temperature, and firing times in the second half of the twentieth century were particularly short. The firing is economical and efficient, and the resulting pots can be transported over long distances without excessive breakages and used for cooking over an open fire.

Scope and Contents:
Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, " Brush Fire."
Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.
In 1911, on his first tour of inspection, Judge Gorlia travelled by foot from Lusambo to Dilolo. Until 1912, the Luba, the Songye, the Kanioka, the Lunda and the Chokwe territories extending southward to Dilolo, were administered as part of the Congo-Kasai district with headquarters at Lusambo.
In the Lunda and Chokwe territories trials were brought on account of hostilities between the native tribes, contrabant was rampant, taxes reportedly never been paid, and also because of unscrupulous and abusive behavior of European agents.
During the dry season, the savanna become parched, brown and desolate and, are usually swept by fire which may be accidental but are more frequently started by the natives for varying purposes connected with their social organization. These regular fires are not only an important factor in the maintenance of savanna against possible encroachment by the forest, but also help to determine many of the features of the savanna plants themselves.
