I just wonder if the adult Europeans in the photograph could have been Zulu War combatants.

John,

No there's no actual date, I would hazard a guess that the actual photograph was taken sometime in the 1890's given the style of clothing. The postcard was postally used in March 1904, but that isn't a useful indication of dating the photograph apart from giving us an end date.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Frank[/quote records,,] What wonderful old records telling sorry tales, I imagine from archives somewhere. Would there be any records about the memorial and it's costs. 4 British families agreed to fund 500 pounds each in June 1880 for a memorial. Then there was controversy about the cost of the design and in the end changes were made after several sites were proposed and rejected and from memory the new design was in the 2000 pound range. Therein lies a question were the donations received or did the 4 families withdraw their original offer.? If so I wonder why?

Hi JY,
IMO this picture was taken shortly post turn of century. 
The building in the background was severely burned in 1893 and it was only fully restored about in 1900. 
The quality of the photography also supports, somewhat ,a  pic date post 1900.

regards

Barry,

Thanks for that, I think you have cracked it the naval cannon is behind the guy with the goatee beard on the left.

According to SAMHS see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - that puts it post-1903. My hunch about the style of dress obviously didn't take into account the colonies.

I wonder therefore if the photograph was taken in 1904 to coincide with the 25th anniversary hence the wreaths & garlands.

Frank,

The letter is an interesting find.

More digging to be done.

If you can isolate the organising committee for the 25 anniversary you will Im sure have the people posing in the photo. Ive been trying to do that in the archives however ran out of time. The key elements are in PMB archives unfortunately.

Different memorial Frank?

There's a monument for the Natal Volunteers, who fought on the British side in the Anglo-Boer War. Unveiled in 1907 and executed by George Wade of London, the monument is crowned by an angel of peace, with four panels below. The panel on the left shows Britannia reading the Boer ultimatum that is implied here to be responsible for the war. The figure to the left is Natalia, hoping that Britannia will come to her rescue. The supporting figures are of Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, while an African crouches at the lower corner in a way that seems inconceivable today but says a great deal about attitudes a century ago. The panel on the right shows St. George slaying the dragon, in this case the Boers. The panels on the other side show a dying hero and Justice with Mercy.

Hi Steve
Sorry didn't make my point clear. That particular monument ( there are others in the gardens ), was dedicated around 1908 Im suggesting Johns photo could have been taken at that dedication. I was looking for potential 'celebration' dates in the Gardens and this one popped up. Just different ideas.

Frank,

I think we can discount 1908, see my previous answer - The postcard was postally used in March 1904, but that isn't a useful indication of dating the photograph apart from giving us an end date.

I have in my collection an original photo of the Zulu War monument just prior to its unveiling. The unveiling cloth is yet to be removed, and a goodly crowd is waiting in anticipation. I am sorry that my uploading skills prevent me from sharing it with you. Written on the reverse is " Unveiling Zulu War Memorial P. M Burg 1892. Hope thi is of help.

Hi Wentworth

The close up I posted on Friday is, I think, the same event. You can see the cloth around the base of the monument having just been unveiled. You might be able to send your photo to Admin who could then upload it?
