Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, " The Compagnie Fran├žaise (Trading Co.). Matadi."
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.
