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.

Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, " Voyage à Dilolo."
Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.
The hammock was the only conveyance available for travel on land. It was swung beneath a bamboo pole carried on the shoulders of two strong African men. They could travel 20 to 30 miles a day. In normal time, there were four pairs of men for the hammock, two men carrying at a time. Men strong enough were almost impossible to find because they were likely to go off to work in the mines.

The canoe is almost everywhere the sole means, apart from human porterage, which the native has devised for the transport of goods. In size it varies: many are designed to carry from two to six men, but others are larger. They are generally well adapted for example for the rivers that lack depth or the courses that abound in rocks and rapids.

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.
Kanda Kanda, a small post on the left bank of the Luilu River, contained the usual administrative offices of a sub-district headquarter (Sankuru district, Lusambo province). The sub-district was mainly cotton-producing and only the Compagnie du Kasai had an establishment here.
