Samuel Baker's boat hauled through river grass, 1864 (1874). Artist: Unknown

Samuel Baker's boat hauled through river grass, 1864 (1874). Samuel White Baker (1821-1893), English explorer and anti-slavery campaigner, left Khartoum, Sudan, in December 1862 to follow the course of the White Nile. In February 1863 he met Speke and Grant who, having discovered the source of the Nile, were travelling down the river to its delta in Egypt. They gave him information which enabled him, on 14 November 1864, to reach Lake Albert Nyanza, Central Africa, now the boundary between Uganda and the Democratic Rebublic of the Congo. Here Baker's steamboat is being hauled through cuttings in river grass during the expedition. From The Illustrated London News. (London, 1874).
