I got a photo taken By George Froom of the 94th regiment of Isandlwana from the National Army Museum who I believe hold others by him of other sites of the 1879 AZW (I think there 49 in total). Does anybody know if they have ever been compiled into a book and if so is it still available? Thanks.

Peter M,

I doubt very much if Captain Froom was the photographer, especially as he didn’t actually see too much of the campaign, he commanded a detachment at Greytown. I would suggest that the photographs are from a compiled album produced by one or other of the photographic studios in Natal as a souvenir of the campaign.

What was the content of the photograph that you purchased? By knowing that I might be able to establish the studio concerned.

Regards,

JY

Peter M,

I just checked the National Army Museum’s online search they hold two albums compiled by Captain Froom, of the 94th Regiment.

Accession Numbers: 1951-04-22 & 1951-04-23. The first album contains 100 photographs, and the second 43 photographs. The online collection includes an image of iSandlwana from the larger album, the photographer of that image was James Lloyd of D’Urban.

Regards,

JY

John, Many thanks for this, the photo I got from the NAM was of Isandlwana. I will go back to the NAM's website and have another look at what they have. Peter M

Peter M,

Save your money, there are quite a few of us on here with contemporary photographs.

You are welcome to PM with any queries.

Regards,

JY

John,
I have marshalled my thoughts more clearly now, what I am seeking is any illustrated books on the AZW - I am sure there are many but are there any you know of that have a good number of what can be called contemporary illustrations such as might have appeared in the Illustrated London News or better still photos? Thanks. Peter M.

Peter,

In my opinion, a good starting point for you would be Michael Barthorp’s The Zulu War: A Pictorial History, or Ian Knight’s Brave Men’s Blood. Both books are well illustrated with a mix of contemporary engravings and photographs.

Regards,

JY
