1841 1871 Explorer Journalist Living Stone Meet Morton Sepia Stanley Wore


EDITORS COMMENTS
This CDV (Carte de Visite) photograph captures the iconic moment when British journalist and explorer, Henry Morton Stanley, met the renowned missionary and explorer, Dr. David Livingstone, in Ujiji, Tanzania, in 1871. Stanley, dressed in his explorer's attire, dons a pith helmet, which had become a symbol of colonial exploration, and holds a rifle at the ready. The sepia tones of the image add an air of historical authenticity and intrigue. Born in Denbighshire, Wales, in 1841, Stanley embarked on a remarkable journey to Africa in search of the missing explorer, Livingstone. After years of relentless pursuit, Stanley finally encountered Livingstone in Ujiji, Tanzania, and famously greeted him with the words, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" The meeting marked a significant moment in the history of African exploration and solidified Stanley's place in the annals of adventure. Stanley's encounter with Livingstone was not only a personal triumph but also a significant moment in the European colonization of Africa. The image of Stanley in his explorer's outfit, complete with helmet and gun, embodies the spirit of adventure and discovery that characterized the era. This photograph is a testament to the indomitable human spirit and the enduring allure of the unknown. The photograph, taken in 1904, is a valuable historical artifact that offers a glimpse into the past and the remarkable story of two great explorers. The image is part of the extensive collection of historical photographs available at Mary Evans Picture Library, a leading provider of high-quality historical images for academic, educational, and creative projects.
