Summary:
The photographs are cityscapes and landscapes taken by Burton E. Ashley in Egypt, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia during the early 1930s and early 1950s. The images include views of Cape Town, South Africa; Cairo, Egypt; Port Said, Egypt, and Mozambique. Architecture depicted includes buildings in Tanzania, a mission in Zambia and the Mohammed Ali Mosque in Cairo. Additionally, there are images of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and rivers and waterfalls including the Luangwa, Nile, Zambezi and Victoria Falls. The collection also includes photos of animals, geological features and vegetation.
Scope and Contents:
The photographs are cityscapes and landscapes taken by Burton E. Ashley in Egypt, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia during the early 1930s and early 1950s. More specifically, Ashley took photographs from 1930 to 1933 while working for the British South Africa Company, and from 1950 to 1952 while working for the U.S. Geological Survey.

The images illustrate architecture such as Islamic buildings in Tanzania, a mission in Zambia and the Mohammed Ali Mosque in Cairo, Egypt; cityscapes of Cape Town, South Africa, and Port Said, Egypt; market scenes in Cairo and Mozambique; and ships, structures, and waterscapes in the Suez Canal, Egypt. There are also images of animals, geological features, and vegetation, including landscapes of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and waterscapes of rivers (such as the Luangwa River, Nile River, and Zambezi River) and waterfalls (such as Victoria Falls).

Some of the photographs were taken by Sydney Schafer. One set of twenty prints is a published package of black and white prints purchased by Ashley in 1933. The images are 6 x 9 cm. and depict Egyptian pyramids.
