Original accompanying caption reads, " A droite du Loange. Près de Kitombe sur la route Kilembe vers Tshikapa." Translated original accompanying caption reads, " Chief Pulu. On the right bank of the Loange river. Near Kitombe on the road from Kilembe to Tshikapa.."
In 1953, de Sousberghe photographed the Eastern Pende chief Pulu at the village of Mahumbu (right bank of the Loange river), belonging to the Kitombe chiefdom. Chief Pulu wore the ancient headdress "gipu gia mbudi".
